The Golden Hour
First to Last: the Stevie Wonder Hit File and Our Tune

: Paul Burnett

'1979 was a really good year for music', says Paul Burnett. ' No one type of music was dominant and records stood out on their own merit. The most healthy aspect was the unpredictability of the charts, which were open to any kind of band. I hope that this trend continues and that the record-buying public will keep on developing wide musical tastes in 1980.' including at 12.3* pm Newsbeat with Richard Skinner

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.
