Dance on terrestrial TV

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Bridie.  I'm a couple of days behind on the links at the moment, owing to not having any internet in the office.

Here's the link for Mayerling:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000gg21

 

You might have thought there would be a link saying that this was part of the BBC dance season, and click here for the other programmes in the season, but apparently not ...

 

I mean, wouldn't that be logical?  I despair of website developers sometimes.

There was a feature on Ballet Black on ITV London News at 6 (the last article, before the 6.30 change to National news). Don't know if anyone else saw it? (it may be on the ITV catchup)

Usually the news programmes on ITV and BBC are only available for 24 hours after broadcast but I couldn't find any local news programmes listed at all.  I live in the North West area so wouldn't have been able to see it live anyway.

I managed to get a short section from twitter 

 

if you go to Instagram Stories for Ballet Black there are a couple of clips there, but nothing longer than this.

Wonder if they'll repeat it for the rest of the country as well, like they did last time?

The BBC has announced that their talent show programme The Greatest Dancer has been cancelled after two series.

 

I'm not surprised really.

Wise decision. The title was inappropriate and the format tacky.

What a shame that this re-showing of Billy Elliot clashes with the showing on Northern Ballet's Dracula on BBC4.

 

Thanks for all the info on what is coming up Janite, it's very much appreciated.
