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.
A new work for television composed by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER lyrics by DON BLACK sung by Marti Webb with featured soloists Rod Argent (piano)
John Mole (bass guitar)
Barbara Thompson (saxophone) Jon Hiseman (drums) and the London Philharmonic Orchestra leader RICHARD LAYTON in a concert performance conducted by Harry Rabinowitz
This concert piece is a one-woman show about love; a set of musical impressions of an English girl in New York. It was written for MARTI WEBB, who has now recorded the work and who recently took over the title role of Evita in the London production.
This sequence of love songs - seen from the woman's point of view-is the first collaboration of Andrew Lloyd Webber with award-winning lyricist Don Black, who has written lyrics for stage musicals and numerous films such as Thunder-ball, Born Free, Diamonds are Forever and True Grit.

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.
