Bob Harris explores the life and music of singer/ songwriter, guitarist and pianist Gram Parsons , whose combined devotion to country and rock found expression in turns with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito
Brothers and Emmylou Harris. Parsons died in 1973, aged 26, leaving behind a relatively small body of solo work. His cult status as a country-rock visionary is confirmed tonight by contributors Emmylou Harris and Keith Richards. The tribute also includes Parsons in an interview previously unaired in the UK. Producer Helen Toland
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.
