The Zawinul Syndicate


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Joe Zawinul (keyboards),
Victor Bailey (bass), Gary Poulson (guitar), Paco Sery (drums), Manolo Badrena (percussion/vocals)
Brian Morton introduces a concert which the group gave last year in the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh. When
Zawinul left his native Austria for
America in 1959, he went straight into the top division, touring with Maynard Ferguson and Dinah
Washington and, in 1961, beginning a nine-year association with Cannonball Adderley. He also worked with Miles Davis , on the trumpeter's fusion album In a Silent Way. Weather Report, the jazz-rock band he formed in 1970 with saxophonist Wayne Shorter , changed the sound of the music for a whole generation by emphasising electric instruments. The Joe Zawinul Syndicate incorporates African rhythms and tonal qualities as well as the synthesiser sounds associated with him.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
