: Rhythms of the World

Acoustic Sounds from Africa
In tonight's programme, compelling performances from Baaba Maal and S. E. Rogie illustrate the extraordinary diversity of acoustic music from West Africa. In his native Senegal, Baaba Maal is the idol of the Poular-speaking Toucouleur population. Shortly before forming his electric band Dande Lenol (Voice of the Race) in 1985, he recorded a set of acoustic material with blind guitarist Mansour Seek . The two were recently reunited for one of the most stunning concerts of the year. S. E. Rogie , from Sierra Leone, is the leading exponent of Palm Wine Guitar music which evolved in the clubs and bars of West Africa in the late 1950s and typically deals with the more humorous aspects of love and life.

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.

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.
