The Smith Lectures
2/8. This week
Professor Arthur Smith lectures on making good use of free time. With archive moments from Bill Bailey , Russell Howard ,
Little Britain, Mark Maier , the Monty Python team and Dylan Moran.
2/2. Madame X profiles American trio Destiny's Child, whose slick brand of girl-group-styled R&B has induced gyrations in both pop and R&B record buyers alike. The currrent line-up features Kelly Rowland , Michelle Williams and Beyonce Knowles , who have all forged big solo careers. This instalment recalls their global hit albums The Writing's on the Wall (1999) and Survivor (2001), and features input from their manager and costume designer.
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.
