: The Record Producers: Richard Perry (part 1 of 2)

The tenth in a series of 18 programmes
Introduced by Andy Peebles
Perry was one of the most remarkable producers to emerge in the mid-60s. His first production of any note was the album "Safe as milk" for Captain Beefheart, but his productions with Tiny Tim in the late 60s allowed his theatrical approach free rein and drew attention to his growing presence.
He was responsible for introducing the first all girl rock band Fanny, helped breathe new life into Barbra Streisand's career and gave the errant Harry Nilsson his greatest success. In the early 70s he created major successes for Carly Simon and Ringo Starr, coming closer than anyone to achieving a Beatles reunion. He has been particutarly successful in helping to promote a series of female artists to chart success and currently regards The Pointer Sisters as the flagship of his production operation. His projects cover a wider range than perhaps any other producer in this series and he rates as one of the most outstanding contemporary producers in the United States.

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.
