: Paul McCartney: Ghosts of the Past

Revealing documentary that offers insights into the working life of one of the most influential musicians of our time, tracing the creation - from round-the-piano discussions to its world premiere this summer in Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral - of McCartney's Liverpool
Oratorio. The ex-Beatle's first venture into the classical idiom - a collaboration with composer Carl Davis , himself famous for TV scores like The
World at War - led to a major work performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, choristers and four top soloists including soprano Kiri Te Kanawa and bass Willard
White. McCartney has drawn on his memories of a Liverpool boyhood, and from the top of a bus on a poignant tour of the city, he talks about his childhood, his family and his fellow Beatles, and about one of the most daunting openings of his life - 'the church gig'. Director Ann Paul
Producer Chips Chipperfield

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
