: Live 8 on Three

The pick of the performances on what figures to have been an emotional day in Hyde Park, Philadelphia and other venues around the world.
The London leg of the massive initiative designed to raise awareness of global poverty reads like a Who's Who of pop royalty. Representing the more mature end of the musical spectrum in front of the 150,000-strong crowd will be the likes of Annie Lennox, Bob Geldof, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Madonna, Pink Floyd, Mariah Carey, Sting, REM, U2 and UB40.
They will be appearing alongside relatively newer names Coldplay, Dido, Joss Stone, Keane, the Killers, Robbie Williams, Ms Dynamite, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, Scissor Sisters, Stereophonics, Travis and Velvet Revolver. Presented by Jonathan Ross, while Jo Whiley and Fearne Cotton venture backstage to chat to some of the musicians.
The American contribution at the Museum of Art in Philadelphia is scarcely less stellar a line-up, with Will Smith introducing Bon Jovi, 50 Cent, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, the Black Eyed Peas, Jay-Z, P Diddy, Sarah McLachlan, Rob Thomas, Keith Urban and Maroon 5. Adding an English flavour to the proceedings in front of a crowd expected to be in the region of one-and-a-half million will be fast-rising Leeds guitar outfit Kaiser Chiefs. Presented by Graham Norton. [web address removed]

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.
