: The Radio 1 Breakfast Show

with Sarah HB


DJ: Sarah HB

: Sara Cox

: Music Live: Jo Whiley

Taking her Lunchtime Social to a secret venue for an exclusive rooftop performance by a major artist.

BBC Music Live reaches its climax today. Everyone in the world - or Great Britain, or at any rate a few people down the pub - will join in vocal appreciation of a Perfect Day (10.00pm Radios 1,2,3,4 and 5 Live). Then the ranks of revellers at Woburn Abbey get treated to a live concert by Elton John (approx 10. 15pm R2). Should be massive.
Also today, efforts to bring different kinds of singing to a wider audience bear fruit, when Michael White introduces Opera in Action (4.00pm R3): one remarkable scheme uses the slogan "Take your parents to the opera!" And the eccentric and delicious collection of 100 Century Songs (2.50pm R3) concludes, which is possibly the only place where Victoria Wood meets Gyorgy Kurtag.
And remember to strap on your boots for The Vintage Book of Walking (9.45am R4 FM) - see our Programme of the Week on p 119. SG

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
