On the day that the Queen officially opens the Channel Tunnel, Simon presents a historic live link-up with listeners in France, as the whole of the morning show is broadcast simultaneously (in French and English) on Radio 1 in the UK and in France with Nicholas Du Roy on Europe 2. A combined
15 million people in the two countries can hear hits from both sides of the Channel, as well as a special Cross-Channel Challenge to see how much listeners know about each other's countries.
And there's live music from
British and French pop stars.
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.
