: Classic Singles

8/8. As the pop single struggles to secure its niche in the digital era, Radio 2 singles out eight 45rpm records for their lasting value and influence, concluding with Marvin Gaye 's What's Going On. Recorded in 1970 during a low period in the singer's life, the moody anti-war single confounded Motown king Berry Gordy 's expectations when in early 1971 it spent five weeks at number one on the US R&B chart and, perhaps more crucially, three weeks at number two on the pop chart. Gaye then got the go-ahead to produce an entire album around the hit. The resulting album - also titled What's Going On - signalled a radical turning point in mainstream black music, and critics eventually embraced the LP as one of the finest ever. Save the Children was the one track from the album to chart as a UK single.

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.
