: Sinfonietta 20

A Birthday Celebration for the London Sinfonietta 'It is only new work that prevents us from living in an artistic museum'.
Artistic director
London Sinfonietta
With close on 100 new works commissioned since its foundation in 1968, the London Sinfonietta has built up an audience for contemporary music which would have been unthinkable 20 years ago. Tonight's programme celebrates the Sinfonietta's birthday in the company of performers and composers who have helped to shape the orchestra's personality: including David Atherton
Paul Crossley , Simon Rattle and Hans Werner Henze in conversation with Sue Cook. Twentieth-century classics are represented by STRAVINSKY'S Agon and a movement from MESSIAEN'S Des canyons aux etoiles, along with world premieres of SIMON HOLT 'S Ballad of the Black Sorrow and instrumental excerpts from HENZE'S The English Cat.
The orchestra's versatility is confirmed when Simon Rattle conducts them in standards like After You've Gone and Dardanella. Lighting BERT ROBINSON Sound VIC GODRICH

: The Film Club

Jean-Pierre Melville
Bertrand Tavernier , director of Sunday in the Country and 'Round Midnight introduces two influential thrillers.
Bob le flambeur
(Bob the Gambler) starring
Roger Duchesne Isabelle Corey
Bob the Gambler has retired from crime and lives very pleasantly on his ill-gotten gains.
But an unlucky streak forces him to plan one last coup.
Jean-Pierre Melville's stylish homage to the American gangster movies he so admired is set in the Parisian demimonde; a world with its own code of honour exemplified by the gentlemanly Bob.
(A French film with English subtitles. First showing on British television. Black and white) and at 12.00
Johnny O'Clock starring
Dick Powell
Lee J. Cobb
Evelyn Keyes
This taut thriller, featuring Dick Powell in one of his early tough-guy roles, was the directorial debut of Robert Rossen , a film-maker much admired by Melville and a key influence on his films.
A suave gambler discovers to his cost that a crooked policeman is more dangerous than a professional criminal.
Produced by EDWARD D NEALIS Written and directed by ROBERT ROSSEN

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.
