4/6. Radio 2's resident rocker
Suzi Quatro continues her look at six established greats of rock'n'roll and pop with radio and TV star-turned-pop-idol Ricky Nelson , whose distinctively relaxed and creamy vocal sound translated into phenomenal record sales throughout the late 50s and early 60s. His many immaculately produced discs include Poor Little Fool and Travelling Man (both US number ones), Hello Mary Lou , Lonesome Town (featured in Ouentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction), It's Late, It's up to You and Fools Rush in. Session guitarist James Burton discusses his solo work on Nelson's recordings, and Tim Rice recalls growing up with the hits. Plus an archive interview with Ricky Nelson , who died in 1985, aged 45.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
