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.

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.
