: First Night of the Proms

Promenaders donning their finery can only mean one thing - it's that time of year once more. The highlight of the classical music season is about to get under way.
Stephanie Hughes introduces the opening concert live from the Royal Albert Hall , where chief conductor Leonard Slatkin will be leading the BBC Symphony Chorus and Orchestra with acclaimed American mezzo Lorraine Hunt
Lieberson in tonight's programme.
The newly restored Royal Albert Hall organ will be put to good use by Martin Neary in the opening bars of Bach's Toccata, followed by the Fugue in D minor arranged by Proms founder, Henry Wood. The Music Makers choral ode by Elgar, which quotes from several of his best-known works, precedes the interval. And Hoist's perennial favourite The Planets ends the evening.
Themes of the 110th season include England at the Crossroads: 1934; East/West; and Back to Bohemia. Among those appearing this season are bass-baritone
Willard W White , violinists Sarah Chang , Joshua Bell and Maxim Vengerov , pianist Alfred Brendel , percussionist Evelyn Glennie and conductor Simon Rattle. There will also be a number of world premieres, including a new symphony by John Casken , Judith Bingham 's The Secret Garden, and The League of Gentlemen composer Joby Talbot 's Sneaker Wave, all commissioned by the BBC.
Director Helen Mansfield ; Series editor Oliver Macfarlane Also broadcast on Radio 3 and www.bbc.co.uk/proms from 7.30pm

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
