AfteV all, what have you- got-, apart from your five senses-to prove those senses are giving you the real thing? When it comes to deciding what is out there, your brain acts like a private detective. Your senses pick up clues and the brain salves the mystery. But it's .easier than' you think to fool the in the world

: Rockschool

In rock what you don't play is often as important as what you do. So Rockschool shows the ways in which guitar, bass and drums work together, building up a musical vocabulary of chords, riffs, licks and fills used in the major rock styles-from blues and HM, right through to funk and reggae.
But in the first of eight programmes Deirdre Cartwright (guitar), Geoff Nieholls (drums) and Henry Thomas (bass) look at which equipment will give you the best sound to suit your style.

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.

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.
