: The Music Biz

Fourth of six programmes which tell the stories behind the multinational face of the pop industry and uncover a mix of music, money and power.
Marketing Meat Loaf. A look at the world of marketing, packaging and promotion that precedes the prize-giving at ceremonies like the Brit Awards. Only six years ago, Meat Loaf was down on his luck and out of the charts, having had a top-selling album several years earlier. But by 1993 he had the best-selling single and album of the year. The repackaging of Meat
Loaf is one of the success stories in the 35 billion dollar global industry. This programme talks to the people who made it happen and asks how much the success of a record is to do with the music, and how much attributable to the marketing effort.

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.
