2/6. Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson returns with a new series tracing the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal.
This edition profiles singer Ian Gillan , who joined Deep Purple in 1969 but left in late 1973 following tensions with guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. But after a decade of other projects - a brief spell in the motorbike industry, the jazz-inspired Ian
Gillan Band and the straight-up hard-rocking band Gillan, and a year spent with Black Sabbath - Gillan returned in 1984 to a reformed Deep Purple, where he's rocked ever since.
New series 1/3. Andrew Collins kicks off another satirical series targeting various aspects of the music industry. He is abetted by Jon Holmes and Robin Ince , with further irreverent input from Julian Taylforth , DJ Hooker and Jackie Clune.

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.
