The events, personalities and music of 1955 to 1984. 4: 1958
Summertime blues. The
Manchester United tragedy at Munich, 'Ban the Bomb' marches at Aldermaston and racial tension in Notting Hill. 'Chantilly lace', the sack dress and the hula-hoop. Elvis was drafted, Buddy Holly 'Raved on' and Cliff Richard arrived to 'Move it'.
Original producer TREVOR DANN Updated by KEVIN HOWLETT (Revised repeat)
Yes! Yes! Yes! Richard Skinner and Andy Batten-Foster bring you fun, fun, fun all the way, including at 4.30 the 'funderful' funtime feature - your chance to win a fabulous funpack. Producer MARK RADCLIFFE
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.
