A Hundred Years from Today: the Genius of Jack Teagarden
1/2. Born 100 years ago this week, Jack Teagarden was the first truly great jazz trombone soloist. In the 1920s Jack played and sang in his lazy Texan drawl with Red Nichols, Benny Goodman , Eddie Condon and Louis Armstrong before joining
Paul Whiteman as the star soloist in the 1930s.
Alongside archival interviews with Jack and Charlie Teagarden , Geoffrey Smith is joined by trombonists Roy Williams and Scott Stroman to look at Jack's early work and examine what made up his unique sound. Producer Patrick Johns

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.
