with The Golden Hour
Part 2 - this day through the years

: Peter Powell

Peter Powell is Radio 1's newest weekday dee-jay, with a time-slot that means he has the crossover audience of housewives, kids home from school, students who've finished the day's lectures and people on their way home from work. With this wide-ranging audience, there's something for everyone in Peter's show.
'Mind you," he says, 'apart from the regular spots like That Drivin' Beat, we do like to keep things as unpredictable as possible and surprise the listeners with a special guest now and then. Musically, with the entire BBC Record Library at our disposal, I can include Rock 'n' Roll, Rockabilly, disco and dance music, plus the singles and album charts, and quite a few new album tracks that people might like to hear.' including at 5.30 Newsbeat with Peter Mayne

: Talkabout

Adrian Love chairs Radio l's open discussion - an opportunity for schools and clubs to choose a subject, provide a panel and pick the programme's music. Add a couple of invited ' experts ' and some abrasive comments by the chairman, and the result is an hour's uninhibited argument.

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
