Documentary: Amazing Journey: the Story of the Who 9.30pm BBC4
The Who have rocked the world for more than 40 years. This profile, of which no advance DVD was available, takes us from the first hit single (I Can't Explain) through their 12 studio albums - starting with My Generation in 1965 and culminating in 2006's Endless Wire - to their most recent tour.
While some may never forgive them for giving the world its first rock opera in Tommy, there's no denying they've created some belting songs - among them My Generation, The Kids Are Alright and Won't Get Fooled Again - that never fail to get even the oldest rockers shaking their tail feathers. (JR)
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.
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.
