2/2. Bob Geldof shares his thoughts on Africa. Talking to journalist Paul Vallely
- who co-authored Geldof's autobiography - the poverty-relief guru discusses the significant role of faith among Africans, who are deeply religious across strong traditional, Christian or Muslim beliefs.
This concluding part explores the impact for better or worse of Christianity and Islam on African society. Contributors include
Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Youssou N'Dour, with voices from Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya.
3/6. Russell Davies continues a tribute to the supremely popular but temperamentally difficult trombonist and band leader
Tommy Dorsey , who died in 1956, aged 51, following a swing-era career boasting over 180 charted singles, including 17 US number ones. Defining recordings include Song of India, Marie, BoogieWoogie, On the Sunny Side of the Street, Opus One and, with Frank Sinatra and the Pied Pipers, I'll Never Smile Again and There Are Such Things.
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.
