: What the World Needs Now: the Burt Bacharach Story

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.

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.
