: American Dreamers - the Mamas and the Papas Story

Mark Radcliffe marks the Wth anniversary of the Mamas and the Papas with a celebration of their uniquely warm, harmonic, hippy sound and a look at the inner rumblings that fuelled - and eventually tore apart - the Los Angeles-based quartet. Formed in New York City, they consisted of two Mamas (singers Cass Elliot, who died in 1974, and Michelle Phillips) and two Papas (songwriter John Phillips, who died in 2001, and singer Denny Doherty), but disbanded in 1968 following a two-year creative burst that gave the pop canon "California Dreaming", "Monday, Monday", "Go Where You Wanna Go", "I Saw Her Again", "Look through My Window", "Dedicated to the One I Love", "Creque Alley" and "Twelve Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming to the Canyon)". With input from Michelle Phillips and Denny Doherty, biographer Eddi Fiegel and members of the Bangles. Producer Wayne Imms

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

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.
