For the next seven weeks MIKE READ will be hosting the evening rock show.
' Over this period I look forward to playing a lot of great music - the best of New Wave, classic rock tracks and some mind-stretching oldies including some American best-sellers from the 50s and 60s. There'll be' the special studio sessions, this week with John Miles , Cowboys International and the Pete Townshend-produced band Straight 8. All in all, an interesting cross-section of music - you've no excuse to miss it! '
Producer CHRIS LYCETT
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.
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.
