Another chance to hear last Friday's concert from the Royal Albert Hall in London, introduced by Louise Fryer. Thierry Fischer makes his Proms debut as principal conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with a sumptuous programme spanning 150 years of French music. Now 91 and still composing, Dutilleux portrays "timeless images of distant events," evoking a childlike innocence, helped by a trio of choristers from Eton College. Ravel's bittersweet concerto is played by one of the brightest French soloists, and Berlioz's nightmare visions give full rein to his passionate romantic soul.

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.
