1/2. Janis. Belting rock-punk singer Beth Ditto pays tribute to her heroine, Janis Joplin , the troubled raspy-voiced Texan who ruled as the "wild woman of rock" from 1967 until her death in 1970. Remembered for her dynamic stage presence, she remains best known for her work with Big
Brother and the Holding Company (Ball and Chain and her signature hit Piece of My Heart) and as a solo artist (the 1971 US number-one LP Pearl, which featured the posthumous chart-topping 45 Me and Bobby McGee ).

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.
