: Picture This

Continuing the series that offers surprising glimpses into individual lives. DJ Derek's "Sweet Memory Sounds". Derek is white, middle class, late 50s. Pass him on the street and you could mistake him for what he used to be - an accountant in a chocolate firm. You'd never suspect that his job now ensures a roaring trade overthe bar at The Star and Garter pub in Bristol, whose regulars include many from the first generation of black immigrants to the city. He identifies completely with the cultural life brought into this country by West Indians, can't imagine living differently now and would love to follow his friends when they retire to the islands. In the meantime he's happy to be their DJ, to spin the records they like, and to goto London on expeditions to find the music his favourite generation all enjoy, but the best moment of his week is always that first pint back in The Star and Garter with his friends.

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.
