: BBC Proms 2005

Colin Davis conducts students from London's Royal Academy of Music and New York's Juilliard School in tonight's live concert at the Royal Albert Hall , which begins with two wartime works. Aaron Copland 's majestic Fanfare for the Common Man for brass and percussion was written in 1942 as a tribute to those fighting the Second World War. In contrast, Ralph Vaughan Williams 's bleak Sixth Symphony from
1948 suggests a desolate postwar landscape. The programme concludes with what is perhaps Hector Berlioz 's best-known work, the dazzling Symphonie Fantastique, in which the composer explores his reaHife obsession with a beautiful actress. With
Charles Hazlewood. Also live on Radio 3 from 7pm.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
