: Humphrey Lyttelton

with The Best of Jazz on records Producer KEITH STEWART
Says Humphrey Lyttelton :
' The records I play on Best of Jazz are entirely my own choice. I run the programme as if it were a jazz evening to which my friends come to listen to my records and bring some of their own. And I do play some of my own that the BBC library don'have. I take note of suggestions from friends and colleagues in the jazz world and also of suggestions from listeners who write In - although I don'play requests. I want the programme to reflect my tastes and those of people who share them - you see what I mean.
'But, since my tastes are fairly catholic, the scope is wide. I think one should introduce as wide a range as possible and I go out of my way to hear music I wouldn'necessarily buy. My 45 minutes is more a foundation course in jazz rather than a What's New in Jazz. As to labels, well, those terms " traditional " and " modern " are only temporary-I've been doing this sort of programmes for ten years now and some of the jazz that was modern when I started is now traditional.....

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
