The Glen Campbell Story

Synopsis

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.
I 4/4. REM bassist Mike Mills concludes a profile of singer, songwriter and guitarist
Glen Campbell , whose country-pop classics of the 1960s arguably remain the genre's definitive recordings. This final edition recalls the 1975 monster number-one hit
Rhinestone Cowboy - Campbell's first genuine pop hit since 1971 and a song whose lyrics struck a chord with a singer whose personal life had hit an all-time low. The single paved the way for further successes - including the 1977 US chart-topper Southern Nights - though unfavourable comparisons with the golden era of Wichita
Lineman and By the Time / Get to Phoenix were inevitable.
Featuring input from Jimmy Webb and journalist Keith Cameron. See Queens of Country on Monday BBC1

The Glen Campbell Story

BBC Radio 2, 27 April 2005 22.00






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.
