: BBC Proms

The world's great orchestras have all visited the Proms over the years, and usually provide some of the highlights each season. Tonight's guests are the Los Angeles Philharmonic under their music director
Esa-Pekka Salonen , who bringa work that was written for them, Lutoslawski's Fourth Symphony. The composer, who died earlier this year, conducted its UK premiere at last year's Proms.
"Lutoslawski is one of the great composers of this century," saysSalonen. "His late works, such as the Symphony No 4, radiate balance and beauty of a very rare kind. At the end of his life, Lutoslawski had found a perfect answer to the centuries-old dilemma of form and content."
The second work is an old favourite, Mozart's Piano Concerto No 20, in which tonight's soloist is Emanuel Ax.
During the interval there's a report from Los Angeles on the orchestra's role in the life of this cultural melting pot, and after it a performance of Sibelius's most popular symphony, the Second. The concert is introduced by James Naughtie. Director Kriss Rusmanis
Series editor Peter Maniura

Trick or Treat?
"All the programmes I've ever seen on male prostitution try to present people press-ganged into the business and in desperate situations. While I don't want to deny that exists, it's not the whole story. It certainly hasn't been my story." Cambridge graduate
John Bratherton has chosen to work as a gay male prostitute for the last seven years. In his film, male prostitutes and clients agree that society presents all prostitution in a sinister light. He challenges the wisdom of generalising about such a complex subject and maintains that prostitution can be a positive and enjoyable choice. Director Liz Jackson
Series producer Sue Davidson

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.
