: Review: Ashton in Camera

Topical arts magazine introduced by David Jones.

A rare opportunity to observe the work of one of the greatest British choreographers, Sir Frederick Ashton, until last year Director of the Royal Ballet and creator of some of the most famous ballets made for the English stage.
Next week the Royal Opera House puts on its Sleeping Beauty, for which Ashton contributed special passages of dance, and tonight we present the first television performance of a work of his which has hardly ever been seen before - a pas-de-deux to the music of Massenet's Meditation.
Only twice before was it publicly performed in this country - at galas at two London theatres - and as a tribute to the 35 years Ashton was associated with the Royal Ballet, Review asked him to remount Meditation for our cameras: to talk about the way the dance was created, and what have been the influences on his choreography.
The dancers are two young stars of the Royal Ballet: Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell.

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.
