Doctor Who Prom - BBC Radio 3, Sat 13th July

It's being recorded for tv broadcast (at some, so far, undisclosed time), but if you want to listen to this year's Doctor Who Prom it's on BBC Radio 3 this weekend.

Doctor Who Prom

Duration: 2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast: Saturday 13 July 2013

Doctor Who returns to the Proms to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the popular BBC series


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer


Programme to include:
Murray Gold Music from the Doctor Who series
and other music from the series by Bizet, Debussy and Bach


London Philharmonic Choir
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Ben Foster (conductor)


Doctor Who returns to the Proms to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the popular BBC series. As well as showcasing Murray Gold's music from the past eight years, the concert also journeys back to the early days of Doctor Who and the groundbreaking work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Featuring special guests from the series, big screens and a host of monsters ready to invade the Royal Albert Hall, this is not the year to be exterminated!


This Prom will be repeated on Tuesday 16th July at 2pm

Nice. SO its an all DW show this year instead of "Mostly DW with a few standard classical pieces slipped in" Nice.

I'll be all over this thing, and looking for a downloadable version afterwards.

I hope hope hope Katherine Jenkins performs "Abigales Song"

Or at least "The Rings of Akhenten" by that little girl. Those are on my wishlist

Re: Doctor Who Prom - BBC Radio 3, Sat 13th July

I just heard a radio interview with Murray Gold. There's going to be a new song for the 50th Anniversary that is going to premiere at the Proms. Also, did he accidentally let slip, at around the 13th minute mark, that there's going to be a new executive producer?

Brian Minchin was announced as the new exec alongside Moffat back in April.

Sorry to disappoint, but there will be some classical pieces in there too:

and other music from the series, including the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 2, Debussy’s ‘La fille aux cheveux de lin’ and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor

I guess it's an attempt to introduce kiddies to some traditional stuff.

Yep. But a better way would be to actually include the traditional stuff in the show. Like they did with the Habanera aria in "Asylum of the Daleks." And then include the full pieces in each season's soundtrack albums.

Meh. Always my least favorite part of these shows. I guess they're just trying to keep the classical purists from bitching. Or else they have a rule that a certain percentage of the performance has to be proper classical music.
