"BBC at Christmas"
 
   Re: Whole day dedicated to ballet...?

Well now, let me guess (take your choice):-

Nutcracker (RB)
Don Q (RB)
Swan Lake (AMP)
Darcey - a portrait
Sylvie - a portrait
Marguerite & Armand
Nureyev's R&J (POB)
Tchaikowsky gala
ROH closing/opening
Something from the ABT repertoire
Something Australian
Something Rambert

Most of which have been on the Knowledge channel or most of us have on video anyway. Any other suggestions?

And.... just to keep their end up on the day, Channel 4 will be showing Ballet Boyz 3 and The Car Man.

How about this for a Christmas Quiz?

   Aren't Firebird and Les Noces scheduled for February? I hope they save something for a little later given that I won't even be in the country on X-mas! (I have grave doubts that Hong Kong TV will be scheduling a whole day to ballet - I think it's going to be The Snowman again for me )

   Will Don Q be shown on BBC Knowledge ? I hope not. I do hope it will be on NORMAL BBC 2. Or I will have to change my Christmas wishes. Yes, I will need a digital TV, won't I !

   According to the excerpts which have been played in the Box Office while I've been there, Don Q is scheduled for around Christmas and the Stravinsky for January, if I remember correctly. Anyway, surely the Beeb isn't really having a *whole* day of ballet - how'd we cope, since the maximum capacity of a video is 8 hours?

   They might add a re-run A portrait of Madam to your list.

   It'd be about time, since they entirely ignored her when she died back in March.

   I am sorry but I am not quite sure what is meant by the first posting

Is there going to be day devoted to ballet?

Are the choices mentioned guess or definite?

Normally the newspapers print the TV christmas listings several weeks in advance - but not this year!

Eugene,
This is the only thing we know FOR SURE at the moment.
We even know nothing about the exact date !

   Well that is music to my ears. I shall be scouring the Tv listings!

I doubt it is on BBC Knowledge as they rarely have themed night And BBC Horizon UK tends to show "Airport" or "Walking With Dinosours" - ballet is not their "thing"!

   Eugene, all these performances could have been on Artsworld or Performance. Since I don't have these new-fangled satellite gadgets I may be mistaken. Nevertheless, don't you think the BBC will be recycling all those old videos? I'd be really surprised if there was anything that we weren't familiar with already.

   How do you find all of this? On the BBC website they only give the current week's listings, how exciting (if they don't cancel it at the last minute!) at last the BBC seem to be pulling their socks up and listening to people!

   The schedule is still being finalised, which is why details have not appeared on the BBC's website. I hope to be able to say more on this in the next few days.
