4/6. Soul singer Beverley Knight shares her passion for gospel music in this series showcasing top acts from around the world, with interviews, choirs, up-and-coming UK talent and live acts. This week's guest is regarded singer David McAlmont , who performs a gospel standard and discusses the continued influence of gospel music on his life and music. Also, Ken Burton and the London Adventist Chorale join Beverley to celebrate Easter in song.

: Ten Million Can't Be Wrong

1/4. In this decidedly populist approach to pop and rock, Kate Thornton slams the door on the critics to celebrate four relatively uncool albums that struck a chord with the public and each sold over ten million copies globally. She starts with the 1977 release Bat out of Hell.
A collaborative effort between singer Meat Loaf (Marvin Lee Aday) and producer/arranger Jim Steinman, this raucously camp long-player peaked at number nine in the UK and number 14 in the USA, but had staying power to match its seismically theatrical gestures. Defining tracks include You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth, Two out of Three Ain't Bad, Paradise by the Dashboard Light and Bat out of Hell.

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.
