The first of two programmes
featuring La Singla, Regla Ortega and Paco de Lucia.
Introduced by Olaf Hudtwalcker

(The Festival Flamenco Company appeared by arrangement with Lippmann-Rau and Harold Davison Ltd.)

Outside Spain genuine flamenco is so largely unknown that Spanish stage dance is often mistaken for it. Festival Flamenco Gitano 1968 is the real dance of the Spanish gypsies presented by an outstanding group of young artists.
La Singla ranks among Spain's ten best flamenco dancers and may be described as the star of the troupe. Regla Ortega is another outstanding flamenco interpreter, and Paco de Lucia a brilliant young guitarist who was awarded first prize at the Flamenco Festival in Jerez de la Frontera.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
