nNew series 1/3. Trumpeter and broadcaster Guy Barker pays tribute to pioneering composer, arranger and musician Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-94), who has been referred to as "the Gershwin of Brazil" and who was instrumental in creating the bossa nova sound. He and poet Vinicius de Moraes were behind the genre's two signature hits - Desafinado
(Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd ) and The Girl from Ipanema (Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto ). Other artists who have benefitted from the Jobim touch are Ella Fitzgerald , Frank Sinatra , Herbie Hancock , George Michael and David Lynch , who used the moody 1962 track Insensatez in his elliptical thriller Lost Highway (1996). Contributors include bossa nova aficionados
Julian Lloyd Webber and Digby Fairweather , modern Brazilian musical artists Seu Jorge and Monica Vasconcelos , and, in a rare interview, Jobim's son Paulo.

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.
