: Ebony

Good to Go
For the last programme in the current series Ebony presents top go-go band Trouble Funk in concert from the Town and Country Club.
Go-go is the latest American sound though its origins go back to Washington DC in the 1960s.
'From the inner city, from the ghetto,' says go-go veteran
Maxx Kidd , 'the kids wanted to do something with music but they couldn't afford all the sophisticated electronic instruments. So they started creating it from the playground, from garages, from the alley. Anything from a trash can to a pop bottle, and it was almost as if we were going back to Africa.' Twenty years on, the sound is more sophisticated but it's still community music and the audience are just as much a part of the music as the musicians.

: One Pair of Eyes

Cecil Collins - Fools and Angels Cecil Collins is a visionary artist who has followed a lonely path outside mainstream modern art and its fads and fashions. His vision is now increasingly recognised, especially by many of the younger generation on whom his work has made a deep impression. Collins believes the sacred purpose of the artist is to remind mankind of a world above and beyond our everyday preoccupations. He paints images of the paradise he feels people have lost in a blind drive for technological mastery over nature.
'Living with a vision is very difficult, but living without a vision is worse.'

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.
