New series 1/4. Paul Sexton profiles prolific songwriter Burt Bacharach, who, with lyricist Hal David, stylised the musical landscape of the 60s with his heart-wrenching, often cool and elegant songs. Together they produced nearly all of Dionne Warwick's 60s classics, plus Dusty Springfield's I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself, Aretha Franklin's I Say a Little Prayer and Herb Alpert's This Guy's in Love with You. The series features new interviews with both Bacharach and David, and input from A&M co-founder Jerry Moss, Richard Carpenter, Noel Gallagher, Tim Rice and others.
Behind the Scenes: page 125
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.
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.
