: When the Going Gets Tough

Phillip Fashanu talks to public figures about some of the tougher periods in their life, how they dealt with them and the music that helped. His guest tonight is Cheryl Baker who in December 1984, at the height of a successful career with Bucks Fizz. was thrown through the windscreen of the band's tour bus after a head-on crash with a lorry, breaking three vertebra in her back.
After a slow and painful recovery, she's now back as a successful TV and radio presenter. She talks about the crash and her rise and fall in the music business.

: They Called Me Al - the Story of Al Bowlly

An investigation of a different kind for John Thaw as he explores the life and music of Al Bowlly, one of this century's greatest crooners. Featuring some of his best-loved tunes from the thirties such as Love Is the Sweetest Thing, Marie and Goodnight Sweetheart, along with a rare take-off of Bing Crosby's singing style, under the name of Bang Horsby. The two were close rivals, and in 1933 the News Chronicle held a competition to find out once and for all who was the more popular. The results are announced in the programme.

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.
