Doctor Who at the Proms!
What better way to start
2008 2009 than with a trip to the Royal Albert Hall in July of last year?
1.50pm on BBC One this afternoon sees the well-regarded Doctor Who at the Proms event broadcast for the first time. Host Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones) takes charge, introducing the BBC Philharmonic and London Philharmonic Chorus under the baton of Ben Foster.
Performing selections of Murray Gold’s scores since 2005, both orchestras perform the music to scenes and sequences from the series displayed on a big screen above the stage – one of which is a specially written scene by Russell T. Davies starring David Tennant and a mischievous Graske.
Look out for the monsters – Cybermen, Sontarans, Judoon and of course the Daleks!
If you miss todays broadcast, highlights are available today for digital television viewers via the Red Button, while an uncut version will be available on the Red Button from 11th January 2009, and also as streaming video on the BBC’s Official Doctor Who website from 12th January 2009.
