Mark Radcliffe invites
Paul McCartney to return to
Studio Two at Abbey Road - where the Beatles recorded their albums - to discuss his songwriting craft. Addressing an audience of just 64 people, the pop and rock maestro reveals his techniques and secrets, and recalls sharing duties with John Lennon. McCartney performs revealing renditions of tunes from his back catalogue with the help of Nigel Godrich , who has produced discs for Radiohead, Travis, Beck and, very recently, Paul McCartney. Producer Mark Hagen

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.
