What is ambient and what's it for? From the Orb to the Aphex Twin and from
Erik Satie to Brian Eno , ambient is more than the sound of the chill-out room. Fifties experimentalists, 70s hippies and 90s techno whiz-kids have created a radical form of music that is much more than simply sound furniture. Introduced by Pete Tong with the Future Sound of London.
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.
