Proms Collections - A One-Stop Shop for Watching and Listening to the Music

Producer, R3 Multiplatform

Proms website - Listen and Watch

 

Did you know that, as well as listening to highlights from this year’s Proms, you can watch previews and complete works?

 

We’ve assembled these highlights in Collections which you can access direct from the BBC Proms website. Of course, broadcasts on TV and radio are available for seven days via the BBC iPlayer, but for the duration of the Proms and for a limited time after the season is over, Collections offer the opportunity for you to go straight to the music which interests you most, for extended periods.

 

Watch highlights from the BBC Proms 2013

Proms Chamber Concerts

BBC Two’s Proms Extra 2013

Wagner at the Proms

Britten at the Proms

Piano Music at the Proms

New Music at the Proms

Watch highlights from the Doctor Who Proms

Polish Music at the Proms

Tchaikovsky at the Proms

 

We’d like to invite your feedback on this way of opening up the music in the Proms - we’re especially interested in how you find your way to the audio and video we present from Proms concerts.

 

Please send us your comments by replying to this blog post - we’ll read everything but I’m afraid we can’t promise to reply to any questions – but will try our best.

 

Here are some questions to get you thinking:

 

1.        Before reading this blog post did you know about any of the collections of audio and video (eg ‘New Music at the Proms’, Britten at the Proms’ , ‘Wagner at the Proms’ etc)

 

2.        Have you listened to or watched any of the online  audio or video from the Proms this season?

 

If you answered ‘ yes’ to question 2

 

 

3.        Do you normally come to the BBC site looking for something in particular from the Proms – an individual concert or artist perhaps?

 

4.        How useful are the Collections to you?

 

5.        What other ways do you use to find online audio and video from the Proms?

 

If you can please do let us know whether you use the desktop site or mobile version or both.

 

Thank you!

    Good morning, Graeme, once again! As you will have noticed over more recent years, I am often the only listener who tends to comment, regularly, on the Radio 3 Blog. The Radio 3 online communities do not necessarily use the BBC website as you might wish, or expect, but the best bet, in my view, is to consider it to be an experiment in progress. Let me take this opportunity, as ever, to invite you all to the Penultimate Night of the Proms.

    Will you be joining us tonight at the Royal Albert Hall, Graeme? Let me also address all five of your questions directly, Graeme:

    1. Before reading this blog post did you know about any of the collections of audio and video (eg ‘New Music at the Proms’, Britten at the Proms’ , ‘Wagner at the Proms’ etc)

    Yes, I did actually, but I doubt that many other Radio 3 listeners would know anything about them at all!

    2. Have you listened to or watched any of the online audio or video from the Proms this season?

    Yes.

    If you answered ‘ yes’ to question 2

    3. Do you normally come to the BBC site looking for something in particular from the Proms – an individual concert or artist perhaps?

    Yes. I am very specific about what I am looking for, Graeme, but most users would probably want more general information.

    4. How useful are the Collections to you?

    They are quite useful to me, but I suspect that I may be an exception.

    5. What other ways do you use to find online audio and video from the Proms?

    Well, I google, Graeme. I quite enjoyed watching Daniel Barenboim's speech on YouTube, for example, but if I want to listen to a prom again, I generally just go to the relevant prom webpage. See you tonight, Graeme? I am pretty sure you would appreciate the Bach live! All the best, c.
