I try to fast forward through the Sky Arts channels from time to time to set Sky+ for any upcoming ballet, but I inevitably miss out from time to time! I've just missed all but the last 2 minutes of 'Bolero'. I was just wondering if it might be a good idea to warn eachother of anything we know that is coming up?
Well, owing to the listings publishers having cheated a bit and done a "pre-Christmas and Christmas" double edition of the TV listings instead of the usual Christmas and New Year version, I'm only still halfway through the Radio Times, but here, as far as I can see, is what's on dance-wise on UK TV and radio this Christmas for the week before Christmas.

I've only just realised that the documentary BALLET 422, which charts the now celebrated choreographer Justin Peck working on the 422nd commission of a new work for NYCB, was broadcast on Sky Arts on 28th October at 9.00 pm. It will be repeated on Saturday, 31st October at 8.00 am on Sky Arts and is available through that same source to download and watch. You can see a trailer here.
