I'd been going to ask what was happening about the scheduled broadcast of Northern Ballet's Dracula, which I thought was supposed to be happening in mid-May or so.

I did't find this but I did find a Carlos Acosta programme that I posted details of on the Terrestrial TV thread. (not wanting to repeat information).

I might be wrong but I thought I read somewhere recently (can't remember where) that Yuli is not being broadcast until July.

Saw this in the Times article about the BBC dance season 

Yuli: The Carlos Acosta Story, the celebrated film about the Cuban’s remarkable life, will get its TV premiere on BBC Two later in the summer.

This page

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08dpy7h

lists a number of, but by no means all, the programmes.  So I suppose I'll have to have a go with the little information I've got  :(

 

All on BBC4:

 

Sunday 24th May, 10-11.30 pm: Revisor by Crystal Pite and Jonathan Young

 

Monday 25th May, 7.30-8 pm: Danceworks: Firedance: Latin Fever (repeated 1.40 am)

 

Tuesday 26th May, 7.30-8 pm: Danceworks: Sharon Eyal: A Basic Instinct (repeated 2 am)

 

Wednesday 27th May

7.30-8 pm: Danceworks: Ballet Black: The Waiting Game (repeated 2 am)

9-10 pm: Men At The Barre: Inside The Royal Ballet (repeated 2.30 am)

10.30-11.30 pm: BalletBoyz Deluxe: Bradley 4:18; Ripple

11.30-12.30 am: Dance on Film: BBC Introducing Arts

 

(what on earth is so special about May 27th that we get so much clumped together on one evening, while everything else is rather bitty, I don't know)

 

Thursday 28th May, 7.30-8 pm: Danceworks: Maria Pages: An Ode to Flamenco

 

 

I've been watching a lot of BBC4 recently, but still haven't seen any advertising of this season.  Clearly also there's no link to an all-inclusive "season" webpage from all the individual programme webpages.  Makes me wonder what on earth the BBC is doing: anybody would think they didn't want people to know it was on at all ... :(

Thank you for this, I had missed the Crystal Pite which is now set to record.

Also don't forget Dracula (posted above) on 31st May.

live performances filmed at [...] the Royal Opera House 

 

Devil In The Feet – the story of Irish Dance and how it’s gone from a traditional folk dance to a global phenomenon.

 

imagine…Kate Prince: Every Move She Makes – or has this already aired?

 

Unless those who said the showing of Mayerling a couple of months ago didn't count were wrong?  Or something was filmed in the Linbury?

Capybara has started a thread in performances seen to discuss what has now been shown.  I've moved the comments about Men at the Barre over.
