A series of programmes which takes a close look at the people and developments that have influenced today's pop music. This week:
Slade - Six Days on the Road Part 1: The Tour
The antics of groups on tour are almost a daily part of our newspaper diet. A few weeks ago Insight went on tour with one of our major pop groups, SLADE, and today's programme focuses principally on the action backstage.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
