Do you know how many football teams have made hit records?
What session singer appeared with three separate bands on the same edition of Top of the Pops?
Did you know that Peter Sellers had a Top 20 hit with The Beatles' 'A Hard Day's Night'?
What have Carly Simon, Diana Ross, Sheila B. Devotion and Debbie Harry got in common?
Steve Wright packs these and other interesting, amusing and totally irrelevant facts into 60 minutes of music and mayhem.

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.
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.
