Been on the Road So Long


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.
Scottish folk singer Alex Campbell died in January 1987 in Denmark. He had been on the road as a performer virtually non-stop since his emergence from the cafes of Paris in the 1950s beat era. He cast the mould from which many who followed were forged and is reckoned to have made over 70 LPs.
With reminiscences from Wizz Jones, Ralph McTell, Patricia Campbell, Archie Fisher, Carsten Panduro, Hannes Wader and Dougie MacLean, this programme traces his life through his music. Presented by Dr Allan Taylor.
Producer Robert Noakes

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.
