To coincide with the release of her first album since 1993, Mark Radcliffe interviews elusive and experimental singer/ songwriter Kate Bush , who first possessed the airwaves in February 1978 with the delirious melodrama Wuthering Heights.
By turns sensual, tribal, precious, theatrical and eccentric, the cult siren has created an unmistakeable repertoire exemplified by The Man with the Child in His Eyes, Wow, Breathing, Babooshka,
Army Dreamers, The Dreaming, Cloudbusting, Hounds of Love and Running Up That Hill, which in 1985 marked her turnaround with previously sceptical critics. Bush's adventurous videos remain vivid if at times ridiculed artefacts from the early days of promo. Producer Paul Rodgers
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.
