: Unplugged

Elton John
Not the kind of artist to make comebacks: since his first hit in 1971 with Your Song, Elton John has never gone away. But was a particularly good year for him: a nightmarish legal tussle with the tabloid press had ended with personal victory, and his album Sleeping with the Past yielded a string of hit singles.
This solo performance, broadcast live on MTV in June
1990, consists of unadorned versions of hits old and new including Sacrifice, Sad Songs, Tiny Dancer, Daniel and Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me.


Unknown: Elton John
Song: Elton John

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.
