They won't be shown on TV for several months, but you can watch them here (in handy bite-size chunks). Warning- as you may be able to tell from the example above, the sound balance can be a little peculiar.
The German TV channel RBB trailed Daniel Barenboim and his Staatskapelle Berlin all the way from Tegel airport to the Royal Albert Hall. The resulting documentary offers an intriguing glimpse of what went into producing the Proms Ring cycle - plus a sugar-coated view of London. Mostly in German, but don't let that put you off.

It's not often I reach the end of a concert wishing I could experience it all over again - especially one six hours long. The final episode of Daniel Barenboim's Ring cycle wasn't perfect - when is it ever? - but there were some truly heartstopping moments.
Siegfried (concert performance) - Royal Albert Hall, 26 July 2013
Siegfried is an oddity. It's most people's least favourite Ring opera; the only one of Barenboim's Proms cycle not to sell out instantly. Yet most conductors seem to find it the easiest to realise musically, and it often turns out to be the best performance in any cycle.
At first glance, this year's Proms appeared to be depressingly heavy on forgettable 20th century British minnows, secondrate-by-nature 'light' music and Russian canon fodder. But as I looked closer I found quite a few I need to go to (and a handful I don't). I intend to stand for most - I'm cheap that way - but my feet have demanded I buy a proper seat for the Wagner operas.
