  1. Clearly a thread doomed to have little life in it, but still: This Saturday, at 7.30 on BBC4, a repeat of "Nureyev: From Russia with Love" http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0080kjw Oh, and if anyone was hoping for some more performances on terrestrial TV, it emerged from the Metamorphosis insight evening this evening that Sky Arts have grabbed that as well. EDIT: General rule of thumb: if it can be received using Freeview only, it goes here!
  2. BBC reports that there will be a Royal Ballet ‘all star gala’ shown on BBC4 over the Christmas period. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55042114
  3. When does Sky Arts move onto Freeview? I know it's this month, but does anyone know the actual date?
  4. I retuned my tv at 7 this morning and it still broadcasts Pick on channel 11 despite a box on screen saying it had moved to 34 🤦🏻‍♂️🙄
  5. "Too busy for the ballet? Let it come to you." This, from to day's Times: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/too-busy-for-the-ballet-let-it-come-to-you-kwxdv07nw?shareToken=fadc62986105c42dc2e9e614c5486905
  6. 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?
  7. BBC Arts announces line-up for 2020 dance season BBC Arts has announced their 2020 Dance Season, which will include live performances filmed at Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Opera House as well as newly commissioned content exploring dance and the UK’s leading dancers and choreographers. The season will include: Revisor – Johnathon Young and Crystal Pite’s newest collaboration, hot on the heels of their Olivier Award-winning production, Betroffenheit. This unique interpretation of the Russian comic play The Inspector General is a fascinating hybrid of theatre and dance.
  8. This would seem to be a marvellous opportunity for the BBC to re-broadcast some of the vast amount of dance-related material that we know is in their vaults but which isn't available elsewhere. I'm sure this forum could provide a helpful list - starting for me with Darcey Bussell's farewell performance of Song of the Earth. A similar initiative in other performing arts genres would be equally welcome - in opera for example - again for me starting with Birtwistle's Gawain! And Radio 3 - Edward Downes' almost complete performance of Rienzi on the BBC in 1976 please?
  9. If people watched Mayerling or recorded it this is the cast list for it. There is a a link to download the full programme (in different languages including English) at the bottom. https://www.roh.org.uk/showings/mayerling-live-2018
  10. Has anyone been watching the Fosse/Verdon series? I started it last night and quite enjoyed it, - well, enjoyed the sequences about dancing and choreography, and the way Fosse and Verdon worked as a team. It is, like most new drama series, fairly hard to follow unless you already know a lot about the people concerned, which I do not. i wondered what more informed viewers thought.
  11. This will include BBC broadcasts during the week Sun 31 March-Sat 6 April, with a live streaming day on Fri 5 April. https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/errz3d/live/c4rp5v
  12. Prob been mentioned elsewhere, but 'Dancer' film is on BBC2 tonight 11pm https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings/?sd=22-09-2018 23:00
  13. our very own @sophie_rebeccain a short film narrated by Ash ' Matty Barton' Palmisciano http://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/emmerdale/news/a863214/emmerdale-ash-palmisciano-matty-barton-random-acts-film/
  14. I enjoyed the Giselle documentary (good to see BBC continuing the trend from the excellent couple we had during the Christmas period). It was a tall order to cover so much ground in an hour, but I think the way the two productions were woven together alongside discussion of the origins of the ballet and the motivation for the character of Giselle worked pretty well. Tamara is such a consummate presenter; she demands your attention - just as on stage, and is particularly engaging when explaining mime (as she did so well in the previous Swan Lake documentary). It would have been good to have exp
  15. Darcey Bussell's programme on Margot Fonteyn having just finished, here's a thread to discuss that and other dance-related offerings.
  16. Nicol and his brother Harry were looking for a London house. The programme is only available in the UK. It is on Channel4seven (which might be a catch-up channel) at 2000 for an hour. Enjoy....Nicol is quite a character so it should be good!
  17. 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'll have to add in the rest later. Terrestrial (BBC1, Saturday 17th December, 6.40 pm: Strictly Come Dancing Final) BBC2, Saturday 17th Dec, 11.50pm: Balletboyz The Making of Young Men BBC2, Saturday 17th Dec (technically Sunday), 12.
  18. Hello folks out there, I recorded the first programme, and just finished watching, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have a question for you. Can anyone tell me what the music is on the final credits? It's so familiar to me from my childhood, but I just can't identify it, hoping you can help? Thanks NL
  19. I have just received an email informing me that Northern Ballet's 1984 will be shown on BBC4 on 28th February! Susan
  20. According to the Daily Telegraph article provided in today's Links http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/bbc/12009837/Male-ballet-dancers-are-now-centre-stage-says-Darcey-Bussell.html, "The programme [Darcey's Ballet Heroes] is intended to be broadcast at the end of the BBC's Year of Song and Dance, and will be joined by documentaries about Nureyev, Acosta, and Pina Bausch." Can't say I'd been particularly aware of the "Year of Song and Dance", but there you are.
  21. I thought this [the Imagine programme on Carlos Acosta] was a very enjoyable and detailed documentary. Some interesting archive footage and very interesting to hear Carlos talk about his exciting project in Cuba.
  22. I'm suddenly getting Emails from ENB (I did book for SW yesterday) and it says that at the end of Newsnight tonight on BBC2 10.30-11.05pm there will be an extract from In the Middle with Erina Takahashi and James Streeter.
  23. Just a recap of some of the televisual dance this Christmas: Christmas Day, BBC2, 12.10 pm: repeat of the Royal Ballet in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", first shown at Easter. If that wasn't enough, in the same evening More4 goes dance mad, with "Matthew Bourne's Christmas" at 9 pm (repeated at 2.50 am); "Akram Khan: Homeland" (aka DESH) at 10 pm, and "Balletboyz: New Generation" at 11 pm. If you really want to overdose, and have Sky Arts 2, then there's quite a feast: "The Nutcracker" (think this is the later, Yoshida/McRae version?) at 8 am; Preljocaj's "Snow White" at 4.25
