with an appreciation of Bob Dylan
"He is certainly the most Important American artist of the 60s and also my personal pop music hero."
"It's hard to imagine how someone could write so much brilliant material. So many LPS are full of classics and 'Like a rolling stone' was the anthem for the American generation of the 60s."
"Dylan always had the courage to change. People who have criticised him for his current religious bent forget that it was equally courageous for him to introduce electronic instruments to his folk music and country and western as he did in 'Nashville Skyline'. It just so happens that the previous twists were well received. This one is not chic. Dylan is still as courageous as ever but he no longer speaks for the great numbers of people he used to."

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
