8/10. Series in which Mica
Paris showcases vintage and contemporary soul, including as-yet-undiscovered artists. This edition features a live session from hot soul singer

New series 1/4. Robert Elms tells the story of Britain's longest-surviving live-music venue -the 100 Club, so named because of its numerical position on London's Oxford Street. The club's repertoire has included everything from jitterbug to jazz, and from punk to indie.
Forget the Doodlebug Come Jitterbug
This first programme recalls the venue's early incarnation as the restaurant Mack's, which in 1942 introduced live jazz.
Plus input from performers and customers who frequented the 100 Club during the war years. Producer David Perry
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.
