: BBC Proms - Live

The Oslo Philharmonic under its conductor Mariss Jansons is now one of Europe's top orchestras. Their concert tonight from London's Royal Albert Hall begins with a bizarre work by Russian composer Alfred Schnittke. He calls it (Not) a Midsummer
Night's Dream and in it a tune which could be by Schubert is taken on a nightmarish journey. Schnittke says of this tune: "I didn't borrow it, I faked it!"
The soloist in the central work, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, is the brilliant young Japanese virtuoso Midori. She began her extraordinary career as an 11-year-old prodigy. Now 21, she says: "The Proms, for me, represent two Englands I tremendously enjoy - a combination of illustrious musical splendour and a romanticism as English as the worlds of Heathcliff and Jane Eyre. So it is a particular thrill
: to make my Proms debut tonight ; with a favourite concerto which
I first recorded when I was 15." After the interval, Jansons conducts Richard Strauss 's huge Alpine Symphony.

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.
