Paul James presents some of the best European folk bands recorded during their visits to this country.
This week features the first
German band in the series, Holderlin Express, recorded at the Man in the Moon, Cambridge. Their material draws on south German traditional music played on hurdy-gurdy, piano accordion, fiddle and guitar.
In the last of the series,
Anita Bhalla talks to broadcaster, author and playwright Tariq AN. Known as a student radical in the 60s, he now runs a TV and film production company.
His choice of music includes two songs that were dedicated to him - John Lennon's
Power to the People and Mick Jagger 's Street Fighting Man.
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.
