: Country Club

Lisa Stewart , one of country music's bubbliest young personalities, brings the curtain down on Country Club's celebrity season. Reared on a diet of blues and country music in her home state of Mississippi, Lisa has also been influenced by folk, jazz and even opera, which she studied at university in Nashville. But BNA Records spotted her obvious talent for country music, and now she divides her time between careers as a recording star and as a TV hostess on the syndicated
Number One Country. Tonight she mixes old favourites with the best of Nashville's current crop, and her own hits.
After 8.00 Richard Wootton joins Lisa for a look back at country music in 1994.

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.
