Radio 1 celebrates Tamla Motown's 30th birthday with tributes to three of the label's brightest stars.
3: A Soul Divided: the Life and Music of Marvin Gaye
At the age of 5, Marvin Gaye was singing in a gospel church choir. By the time of his tragic death 40 years later, he'd been dubbed 'the tormented genius of soul'. Throughout his life, Marvin poured his feelings into song - and created some of the finest pop music ever recorded. Stuart Grundy tells the story of Motown's most wayward son. With contributions from Marvin Gaye, Frankie Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and others. Written and produced by JEAN PENNINGTON
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.
