Noel will be participating this afternoon in the first event of Radio Is week out in Wales, the football match between Radio 1 and BBC Radio Wales at Ninian Park. Cardiff. 'The football matches have always been fantastic,' he says, and usually pull large crowds. We had 20,000 at Elland Road during our Leeds week. Not only are they a lot of funm but we do raise a lot of money for charity.'
Although his own programme will not contain a particularly Welsh flavour, he will be doing inserts for other programmes on Monday and Tuesday. 'We dash out in the radio car before anyone can stop us and go and talk to local people. It's really a bit like Secret Army 1.'
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
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.
