: Double Bill

A second chance to see two of the most successful rock concerts of 1986 Rendez-Vous Houston 'The biggest show ever produced on this planet.'
This typically Texan claim was how Jean-Michel Jarre 's Houston extravaganza was described earlier this year, a fact subsequently supported by its inclusion in this year's
Guinness Book of Records. The concert, which took place on 5 April, was part of Houston's sesquicentennial celebrations. It used the ultramodern downtown skyline as both a back-drop and a projection screen for the largest laser show ever given. A crowd of over a million watched it from as far as two miles away.
Jean-Michel describes his aims, and highlights from the evening's amazing fusion of lights, projections, lasers and music are shown. (R)

You pretty things', 'Changes', 'Time', 'Suffragette city', and 'Rock 'n' roll suicide'. On stage he is backed by The Spiders From Mars - Mick Ronson, Mick Woodmansey and Trevor Bolder.

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.
