David Jensen 's show now combines music with conversation on many different topics. He explains why he enjoys the new style:
. In some ways the more bizarre the subject, the better I like It. Recently we've covered things as diverse as glue sniffing, sausages, the NHS and duvets versus sheets. The Interviews are not all music-related but they do tange from Nick Heyward. very much an upfront rock personality, to bands like Death Cult, who are a cult In the true sense.
But we also cover a lot of middle ground. With John Peel I've tried to build up an Identity for Radio 1 in the evenings -
" Night time Radio 1 ". I hope people are drawn to it. So far the reaction has been very positive.'
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.
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.
