Since its release in 1978, Bat Out of Hell has spent more of those 15 years in the UK album chart than out of it, and Bat Out of Hell II, already a million seller, looks set to emulate it. The album's creators,
Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman , attempt to explain the secret of their success.

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.
