: Omnibus at the Proms

Introduced by Nigel Kennedy
Since its birth in 1983, the Lyons
Opera Orchestra has quickly made its mark on the European musical scene. Now, under the baton of its founder and Music Director, John Eliot Gardiner , the orchestra makes its first visit to the Proms.
Continuing the literary strand of this year's concerts, the centrepiece of tonight's programme is Berlioz's Harold in Italy, a richly romantic work inspired by Byron's poem Childe Harold 's Pilgrimage. The soloist is
Zoltan Toth , the orchestra's principal viola and a former professor at the National
Conservatory in Budapest. The concert begins with Faure's orchestral masterpiece, his suite Pelleas et Melisande. Lighting DAN CRANEFIELD Sound GRAHAM HAINES Executive producer KENNETH CORDEN

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
