Northern Soul series in which Stuart Maconie spins classic recordings alongside the latest releases, including hot tracks from clubs across
Britain. This edition features recent re-issues and current dance-floor favourites from Bisley's Nightshirt club.
A new six-part series in which Roger Daltrey presents a profile of pioneering rocker Chuck Berry , who-though mucholderthan contemporaries such as Elvis Presley , Jerry Lee Lewis and Gene Vincent - spoke to a generation of American teens with his singular sound derived equally from white and black influences. This first edition offers a look at his seminal 50s Chess recordings and his enormous significance for British acts. Producer Neil Rosser
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.
