: The Record Producers

The 11th in a series of 18 programmes,
Richard Perry (Part 2 of 2) Introduced by Andy Peebles
Although dealing in sound, Perry's production approach is based on visual concepts. He sees a stereo picture as a stage or piece of architecture, building sounds around his central feature.
Never afraid to tackle projects across a wide performance spectrum, his work has ranged from speech and music albums with Theodore Bikel to West-Coast ' punk ' bands.
Like a number of his contemporaries, he now has his own record label, Planet Records, which he founded in 1978. Whether or not launching his own label was a wise move still remains to be seen, but all other evidence would seem to suggest that successful record producers should stick to production.
A book to accompany the series will be available in May from booksellers

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

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.
