BBC Proms 97
10.55pm BBC1 Passion Russian-style is the order of the day as the Kirov Orchestra plays two of the most popular and romantic narrative pieces in the repertory. Rimsky-Korsakov's symphonic suite Scheherazade has a delicate solo violin theme representing Scheherazade, which is matched by the booming stentorian motif of her husband the Sultan. It is a perfect primer for Tchaikovsky's Overture: Romeo and Juliet. The piece is based on the play without actually following the plot scene by scene. Instead, three recognisable themes can be distinguished, including the famous sweeping love theme of the finale.
Prokofiev's version of Romeo and Juliet, which he wrote as a ballet, can be seen next Saturday on BBC2.

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.
