: Tales of Rock 'n' Roll

Walk on the Wild Side
Continuing the Arena series with the true story behind Lou Reed 's classic rock song that celebrated transvestism.
All the characters named in the song were real people who frequented Andy Warhol 's studio in the late 60s.
Trans-sexual Holly, andjackie and Candy, who were transvestites, starred alongside street hustler
Joe Dallesandro , in the low-budget films Warhol was making at the time. Lou Reed was another regular visitor to the artist's studio and Walk on the Wild
Side is a description of the bizarre and sometimes sordid world inhabited by Warhol's
"superstars". Of those named in the song, only "Holly"
Woodlawn and "Little Joe"
Dallesandro have survived to tell the tale and both are interviewed in the film. An examination of a significant chapter in New York's underground culture, it also includes unseen archive footage of Max's Kansas City, the notorious club made popular by Warhol in the late 60s.

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.

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.
