: Christmas Time in Vienna

Part of the joy of Christmas on television has always been those cosy, heart-warming shows of festive music. These days, though, opera's superstars are replacing the Val Doonicans of former times.
Following the success of Christmas in Vienna 1992, tenor Placido Domingo joins with popular singer Dionne Warwick and bass-baritone Ruggero Raimondi for a selection of classic and original Christmas songs (and a few "hits" without seasonal connotations).
They perform a combination of solos, duets and trios, with a final medley that includes such favourites as The Christmas
Song and Mary's 's Boy Child. The singers are accompanied by the Mozart Boys' Choir and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vjekoslav Sutej.
Recorded just two days ago in the splendour of Vienna's
Hofburg Palace, the show was staged by Mario Dradl , who produced the famous Three Tenors concert in Rome in 1990. Tim Rice describes the scene.

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.
