The Record Star Show


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.
Featuring: The Amen Corner, Kenny Ball's Jazzmen, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich, The Spencer Davis Group, Simon Dupree and the Big Sound, The Easybeats, Chris Farlowe and the Thunderbirds, The Flowerpot Men, The Foundations, The Move, Cliff Richard, The New Vaudeville Band
and Disc-Jockeys: Tony Blackburn, Pete Brady, Dave Cash, Simon Dee, Kenny Everett, Alan Freeman, David Jacobs, Don Moss, Pete Murray

Televised by arrangement with the Daily Express and The Stars Organisation for Spastics

It's the highlight of the pop year... the show that packs together more stars and more disc-jockeys than any commercial management could ever afford to put on the same bill. The big names all appear free - to raise money for the Stars Organisation for Spastics. There were two performances at the Empire Pool Wembley last Sunday and a BBC-tv outside broadcast team was there to record the programme you'll see tonight. With a line-up that reads like a hit-parade chart, you're certain of fifty swinging minutes.

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.
