1/2. Adam White rewinds to the spring of 1965 to recall Tamla-Motown's star-studded 21-day

With input from industry veteran Vicki Wickham , former record executives Tony Hall and John Schroeder , and, from the archives,
Smokey Robinson and John Lennon. Plus early Motown hits and tasty rarities. Producer Paul Sexton

: Piaf

New series 1/4. Petula Clark profiles the legendary
- French chanteuse Edith Piaf , who died of cancer in 1963, aged 47, following a career marked by dramatically soaring performances, among them the genre-defining classics Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien and, perhaps most iconically, La Vie en Rose. The series features rare archive material and interviews with Charles Aznavour , composers
Charles Dumont and Francis Lai , and others. This first part recalls Piaf's impoverished early days, spent literally on the streets. Producer David Roper

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
