: First Night of the Proms

The world's greatest classical music festival is about to get under way. The eight-week long 113th season is launched by Czech maestro Jiri Belohlavek as he lifts the baton as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. A celebration of premieres at the Proms since the BBC became associated with them 80 years ago begins with Walton's roistering Portsmouth
Point overture (given its London premiere in 1927). It's followed by Eigar's timeless Cello Concerto in E minor, in the year of his 150th anniversary. After the interval Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the life-affirming Choral, makes a historic initial appearance at a First Night, as it was cancelled last year owing to a fire at the Royal Albert Hall. It will be heard again later in the season, this time played by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mariss Jansons. Introduced by Charles Hazlewood. Also live on Radio 3 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.

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