Les Sylphidea with Dame Alicia Markova
From its performance in Paris on 2 June 1909 with the legendary Pavlova, Karsavina and Nijinsky, Les Sylphides became one of the most widely loved ballets of all time.
Its choreographer MICHEL FOKINE , using the beautiful piano works of Chopin, created the essence of romantic ballet. Dame Alicia had the privilege of learning the roles from Fokine himself.
In tonight's masterclass, Dame Alicia passes on this knowledge to Margaret Barbieri and David Ash -mole of the Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet.
At the end of the masterclass, Clement Crisp , ballet critic of the Financial Times, talks to Dame Alicia about Les Sylphides.

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.

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.
