1/2. ToeRag Studios. Pete Mitchell tells the story of ToeRag Studios, set up by Liam Watson and Josh Collins in east London's Hackney in 1991. A strictly analogue enterprise now run by Watson alone, ToeRag uses exclusively pre-1960 studio equipment, with vintage amps, mics and mixing desks from Abbey Road. Recorded at ToeRag in two weeks, the White Stripes' ultra-hip 2003 long-player Elephant provided the label with a number-one album, and established ToeRag as a trendy antidote to digital music-making. Pete talks to
ToeRag clients the White Stripes, Madness, Hugh Cornwell , James Hunter and Supergrass.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
