: BBC Proms 1995: the Centenary Season

Esa-Pekka Salonen brings his gifts as a conductor of 20th century music to this live concert from the Royal Albert Hall , which includes a world premiere in the first half. Latvian-born GidonKremer is the soloist in Graal Theatre, a new violin concerto composed for him by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho.
In this work, Saariaho forsakes electronics for a more traditional concerto form in which the violin interacts with the orchestra. "This is certainly a difficult piece to play but Gidon is a strong artist," says Saariaho.
The concert opens with Carl Nielsen 's He/ios overture. In the second half, Karol Szymanowski 's
Stabat mater is followed by the erotic Poem of Ecstasy by Alexander Skriabin. With the BBC Symphony
Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Chorus and soloists Judith Howarth (soprano), Randi Stene (mezzo-soprano) and Jason Howard (baritone), Introduced by Michael Berkeley who, in the interval, looks at new research into how and why we are moved by certain music. Director Barrie Gavin ; Executive producer
Jonathan Fuiford * SIMULTANEOUS BROADCAST: with Radio 3

: Modern Times

A series about how we live now.
Weekenders. What is the weekend country cottage - a status symbol, a bolt hole, a nightmare?
As tired city dwellers set off in search of the peace and quiet of the country
Modern Times ponders the joys, pains and absurdities of the weekend cottage.
Seven contrasting families describe theiron-off love affairs with their rural retreats, a place to which they escape every Friday night in the hope that they will have two days of the quiet life. For some, the weekly escape is a nightmare of planning, while forteenagers the country is a place lacking in fun.
One couple found their country caravan such a relief that they didn't tell theirteenage sons where it was for fouryears. And there's businessman Ivan, forwhom the weekend means virtually a change of personality. He trades his Ferrari for a Morris Minor, changes his name to Ken and converts his dogSasha to country pooch Colin. Producer Lucy Blakstad ; Series editor

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.
