: Hellhounds on His Trail -the Robert Johnson Story

6/6 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, unaware of the immeasurable impact his relatively few recordings would have on postwar Chicago blues, jazz, R&B and rock. This final programme explores the three possible burial sites for Johnson, and features an interview with the 80-year-old widow of the grave-digger who buried the blues legend back in August 1938. Contributors include John Hammond , Taj Mahal and BB King.

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.
