: Carnaby Street and All That

Lulu swings back to 1966 in this nostalgic trip to London's Carnaby Street. the Mod mecca that defined the consumer ethos of the Swinging Sixties and forged new and inventive links between fashion and popular music. Recalling its glorious heyday are designers Caroline Charles, Barbara Hulanicki (owner of the shop Biba), Jeff Banks, Simon Posthuma and Mary Quant. Plus Carnaby Street historian and former Face editor Richard Benson, fashion journalist Suzy Menkes, Vidal Sassoon, Harry Fox (co-owner of the boutique Lady Jane), and music stars Pete Townshend, Donovan, Dave Dee, Chip Hawkes, Mick Avory and Dave Davies. Plus archive input from photographer and pioneering fashion retailer Bill "Vince" Green, Carnaby Street mogul and visionary John Stephen and John Lennon. Producer Neil Rosser

"A herring of a thoroughfare among the salmon of the West End," must be the most extraordinary description ever voiced of London's Carnaby Street (above), but Lulu manages to carry it off with style in this fitting - and definitely not fishy - tribute to the road that came to symbolise everything that was swinging about the 60s. The central question that all the starry contributors mini-skirt around is which came first: the revolution in pop music or the revolution in fashion? Pete Townshend saw definite links between mod culture and the fashion industry, while for Dave Davies of the Kinks, Carnaby Street was a means of altering all the accepted mores of who wore what, a concept reflected in his band's lyrics. Fashion writer Suzy Menkes and designer Jeff Banks see the relationship between pop stars and original outfits as something that happened in tandem: bands needed clothes that got them noticed and designers were happy to get their work noticed. Ah, those were the days, when every pop upstart was a dedicated follower of fashion.

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.
