2/8. Reggae enthusiast and aficionado Mark Lamarr showcases excellent examples of the Jamaican musical genre. Tonight he is joined by perhaps the most innovative and influential of all reggae DJs - Mikey Dread (aka
Michael Campbell ), who debuted on the Jamaican airwaves in 1976.
3/4. Steve Lamacq recalls the mid-90s phenomenon labelled Britpop - a vital and creative burst of music and lifestyle that coincided with the arrival of New Labour and followed several years of tired and uninspired popular culture.
Arousing the airwaves under the packaged banner of "Cool Britannia" were Oasis, Blur, Pulp and others. The story continues with a look at the much-hyped rivalry between Blur and Oasis.
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.
