Pop Idols - the Duran Duran Story


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.
Martin Fry assesses the legacy of Duran Duran , the Birmingham-bred quintet that arrived in 1981 on a wave of New Romanticism before re-emerging a year later as the ultimate teen-appeal act of the era. Non-stop chart hits and high-gloss videos followed, with Girls on Film, Hungry like the Wolf, Save a Prayer, Rio, The
Reflex, The Wild Boys, A View to a Kill and the 1993 comeback single Ordinary World all defining the Durannie sound. Featuring new interviews with the band, plus input from Hazel O'Connor , Gary Kemp and producer Nile Rodgers. Producer Nick Barraclough

BBC Radio 2, 1 January 2005 21.30

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.
