: Hellhounds on His Trail - the Robert Johnson Story

1/6 Another chance to hear Paul Sexton's profile of Mississippi-born blues singer, songwriter and guitarist Robert Johnson, who died - probably from poisoning - in 1938, aged 27, unware of the seismic impact his relatively few recordings would have on postwar Chicago blues, jazz, R&Band rock. Few 20th-century artists remain as mythically defined as Johnson, who allegedly earned his great talent in a crossroads meeting with Satan, immortalised in the singer's 1936 signature classic
Cross Road Blues. Indebted to the often tormented Johnson are such acts as Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones and their followers.

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.
