with an appreciation of Carole King
'She is the major female pop songwriter of the 60s who turned out a series of wonderful hits for a wide variety of artists and shocked everyone by releasing an all-time classic LP of her own in 1971 - that being "Tapestry". Her hit single of the early 60s "It might as well rain until September" had not shown evidence of her vocal ability, of her skill at the piano and of the way she could breathe into her songs that extra amount of meaning that can only come from the person who wrote it. She made several more fine tracks in the 70s but no album to equal "Tapestry" which remains the finest album ever from a female singer-songwriter'.

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

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.
