: BBC Proms 2008: First Night of the Proms

What is arguably the world's greatest classical music festival gets under way tonight at the Royal Albert Hall in London with a host of international soloists joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor Jiri Belohlavek.
Renowned organist Wayne Marshall begins proceedings on the venue's historic organ by playing Richard Strauss 's Festliches Präludium, while electrifying Finnish soprano Karita Mattila sings the composer's Four Last Songs. Acclaimed pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays Beethoven's Rondo in B flat major for piano and orchestra, and charismatic Nicholas Daniel performs Mozart's Oboe Concerto in C, K314.
Tonight's entertainment also sees the launch of the centenary celebrations of composers Olivier Messiaen and Elliott Carter. It will feature Messiaen's Dieu parmi Nous, the majestic finale to La Nativité du Seigneur, and the UK premiere of Carter's brilliant toccata Caténaires for solo piano. The concert will conclude with Alexander Scriabin's powerful The Poem of Ecstasy.

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.
