2:Breakin' the Chains - the Birth of the Blues
How the slaves' "field hollers" developed into the blues - songs performed by just voice and guitar. The programme also looks at how Memphis,
Detroit and Chicago became melting pots for this music and features interviews with John Lee Hooker , BB King and Sam Philips , as well as blues classics from the twenties onwards.
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.
