: Will the Circle Be Unbroken? - the Carter Family Story

Dolly Parton traces the story of country music's founding clan, the Carter Family.
Originally a trio (Alvin Pleasant "AP" Carter, wife Sara and sister-in-law Maybelle, later mother of June Carter), they applied their pure and simple harmonies and distinctive flatpicking guitar style to traditional and hillbilly folk songs. Their rocky but massively influential career since 1927 yielded more than 300 recordings, including Keep on the Sunny Side, Worried Man Blues, Wabash Cannonball and Wildwood
Flower. Contributors include family descendants, plus input from AP and Sara's recently deceased daughter Janette, who was the last of the original Carter Family.

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.
