: Beautiful Noise - the Neil Diamond Story

3/3. Paul Gambaccini profiles veteran singer/songwriter
Neil Diamond. This final edition recalls Diamond's output since the late 70s, starting with his kitschy, 1978 US chart-topping duet with Barbra Streisand , You Don't Bring Me Flowers. In 1980 he consolidated that single's slicker aspects by starring in and providing music for a Hollywood remake of The Jazz Singer opposite Laurence Olivier. The project produced three huge radio hits in Love on the Rocks, Hello Again and America, none of which restored his crediblity among the music cognoscenti. His latest album, 12 Songs, has proven a different matter altogether, with Diamond enjoying renewed critical and popular success.

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.
