: Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story

Another showing of the prizewinning story of how a classic recording was made, featuring
In September 1984, in a New York recording studio, composer Leonard Bernstein conducted for the first time anywhere a complete performance of his 1957 musical. Omnibus cameras covered the five hectic and exhilarating days of rehearsing and recording to make this documentary. Reviewing the record in Gramophone,
Edward Greenfield says, 'The speed with which the whole piece moves is astounding, not just as a superb entertainment but as a Shakespearean tragedy modernised and intensified'.

: Rhythms of the World

Celia Cruz with Tito Puente and His Orchestra
The Queen of Salsa teams up with the King, in a spectacular performance filmed at the Apollo Theater in New York. Combining Cuban rhythms, glamour, verve and sass, the dynamic voice of Celia Cruz has thrilled audiences all over the world for decades. She has been compared with Aretha Franklin, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald, but to Hispanics in America she is little less than a goddess, and she still sings the chants of Cuba's ancient Santerra religion. With special guest Johnny Pacheco.

Museum in Moscow, introduces two of his films.
Ivan the Terrible
-Parti starring
Nikolai Cherkassov Eisenstein's boldly composed images,
Prokofiev's striking score and Cherkassov's superb performance make Ivan the Terrible the greatest achievement of Eisenstein's career.
At his coronation, Tsar Ivan IV declares his intention to unite Russia into a strong, independent state. His programme makes him implacable enemies, who threaten his throne and his very life. But Ivan is not slow to learn the uses of power.
Written, produced and directed by SERGEI M. EISENSTEIN
(A Russian film with English subtitles) and at 11.05pm Strike
Eisenstein's feature debut is a devastating chronicle of the events surrounding the famous industrial dispute of 1912. It demonstrates the young director's radical theories of montage. Strike is also remarkable for its imaginative photography, cruel imagery and the energetic performances by members of the PROLETKULT

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.
