Ever since Sir Henry Wood's Proms were first broadcast in 1927, Last Night has become an essential appointment to listen and to view and is enjoyed by millions all around the world. This official miscellany from the Radio 3 team explores the history and traditions that have developed on the last night of the world's biggest and longest-running classical music festival.

From flag waving and Thomas Arne's iconic 'Rule, Britannia' to the most memorable conductors' speeches, and the story of how the Proms survived the Blitz, in The Last Night of the Proms, we salute this uniquely British institution.
