Tonight’s proms are split into two rather different sections.

The first is much more traditional, featuring performances of the works of Holst, Vaughan Williams and Parry, covering the events near the start of the 20th century including World War I. The second performance looks at the pioneering work of the women in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, including Doctor Who composer Delia Derbyshire.

BBC Proms is on BBC Four at 19.30 and 23.00.
