: First Night of the Proms

Verdi's Requiem
Live from London's Royal Albert Hall , the opening concert in the 98th season of Henry Wood Promenade
Concerts. Almost 400 singers and players throng the stage to perform this mighty work. The line-up of international soloists - all of them making their
Proms debut - is headed by the young American soprano Susan Dunn , already a leading Verdi exponent. The performance takes place in the presence of the Princess of Wales.
The BBC Symphony
Orchestra's Chief Conductor
Andrew Davis says: "The opening concert of the Proms has always been, for me, one of the most exhilarating musical events of the year. The Royal
Albert Hall seems to be purring with pride as it prepares to host the most wide-ranging festival of music in the world. And what better way to begin than with the Verdi Requiem which, with its combination of dramatic power and spiritual vision, constitutes his crowning achievement."
With Marjana Lipovsek
(mezzo-soprano), Vinson Cole (tenor) and Paul Plishka (bass), BBC Singers,
London Symphony Chorus, BBC Symphony Chorus and Orchestra.
Introduced by Richard Baker. Director Rodney Greenberg

: * A Question of Attribution

Another chance to see this BBC film, winner of the Bafta Award for Best Single Drama of 1991, being shown as part of the Alan Bennett season. Starring James Fox
Prunella Scales
Director John Schlesinger and producer Innes Lloyd teamed up with Alan Bennett for the last time on this adaptation of his successful National Theatre play. A witty examination of the thesis that appearances can be deceptive, it centres on a chance encounter between
Anthony Blunt , Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures and the "fourth man" in the Cambridge spy ring, and Her Majesty the Queen.

First showing on network television for Fernando Solanas's acclaimed film, which ends the Discovering Latin America season.
Starring Miguel Angel Sola

Exile and homecoming are the themes of this haunting film: its rich visual imagery and striking soundtrack won Solanas the Best Director award at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival. He was later shot and wounded by reactionaries after a disagreement with Argentina's President Menem. Floreal has served five years in prison for subversion. On his release he tries to come to terms with his wife's infidelity and the lost years. Partly in Spanish with English subtitles.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
