: Stephanie Cole in Soldiering On

Originally screened as one of Alan Bennett's 1988 series of monologues, Talking Heads.
A stockbroker's widow finds life stripping her of most of her assets, including her memories. "She may seem tragic to an onlooker, but she's not tragic to herself because she closes her eyes to anything uncomfortable or unacceptable," was Stephanie Cole's impression of the stoical woman she portrays, revealed in a Radio Times interview at the time of the first broadcast.

: BBC Proms - Live

A varied selection of madrigals from Monteverdi's Sixth Book are offered in tonight's concert from the Royal Albert Hall in London. Written while the composer was at the court of the Gonzagas in Mantua and published in 1614 in Venice, where he spent the last 30 years of his life, the madrigals reflect his personal and professional crises of that time. Anthony Rooley directs the singers and players of the Consort of Musicke with its sumptuous array of period instruments. "The madrigals from Monteverdi's Sixth Book reflect the heated atmosphere of the Gonzaga court in Mantua and the delight in the erotic side of life, full of colour, vitality and anguish," says Rooley. "The Albert Hall may not seem the most appropriate place for late-night madrigals, but it is a blessed space in terms of the clarity of the acoustic and, in my experience, it is in the quietest moments when the real magic is made." Introduced by James Naughtie. Director Robin Lough
Series editor Peter Maniura

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.
