: The World of Jimmy Young

Every weekday for the last six years millions of housewives after packing off their husbands to work and their children to school have tuned in to Jimmy Young on Radio 1. Since 1 June he hasn'been there. On Monday he began a new programme on Radio 2.
To his fans Jimmy is more than just a disembodied voice, he is a friend. Someone to confide in. The World of Jimmy Young traces the creation of his new programme from the moment of its conception up to Monday's first broadcast. It looks at Jimmy's rise from baker's boy to pop idol; Petnla Clark recalls recording duets with Jim in a primitive studio where the lavatory served as the echo chamber.
The programme shows the pressures of the public and private life of this unique broadcaster.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
