: It's Only Rock and Roll

A Whistle Test report on Mick Jagger
'I was, you know, feeling in the mood for it, and I thought - stop talking about the solo record you might do one day. I didn't think about it too much, to be honest. I just went ahead and did it.'
(ROLLING STONE magazine 1985) Since June 1962, Mick Jagger has been fronting what for many is the greatest rock and roll band in the world - The Rolling Stones. In March of this year, he broke that mould and released his first solo album - She's the Boss.
David Hepworth flew to
Paris and met up with Mick to talk to him about the project. This exclusive interview includes footage shot recently in Brazil to accompany the album, as well as rarely seen archive footage of The Stones in performance.

: Amazing Bass

A profile of the virtuoso bassist Gary Karr , with his duo partner Harmon Lewis , and Yehudi Menuhin ,
Ruggiero Ricci , the Boise Philharmonic, and conductor Daniel Stem.
Gary Karr is probably the only person ever to persuade Yehudi Menuhin to play the double-bass. Karr's own bass playing is nothing less. than phenomenal. Apart from extraordinary technical virtuosity, he can produce a singing tone of great intensity. This film follows him to Menuhin's Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland and to Galveston in Texas; to Boise, Idaho and to the home that Karr and Lewis share in Connecticut. Photography

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.
