Jazz Week: The Coltrane Legacy


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.
By the time John Coltrane died in 1967, at the age of 40, he had revolutionised the sound of the saxophone and extended the boundaries of jazz itself. Quiet, sometimes elusive, he had a profound and lasting effect on those who knew him and played alongside him.
This programme brings together most of the known footage of John Coltrane.
Performances are from 1959 with the Miles Davis Quintet , from 1961 with his own quartet in Germany with guest soloist Eric Dolphy , and from 1963 with his quartet in California. Along with the music are contributions by fellow musicians
Elvin Jones , Jimmy Cobb and Reggie Workman. Producers

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.
