: What the World Needs Now - The Burt Bacharach Story

2/4. Paul Sexton profiles revered songwriter Burt Bacharach , who, with lyricist Hal David , stylised the musical landscape of the 60s with his heart-wrenching, often cool and elegant pop dramas. Career peaks include Dusty Springfield's / Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself, Aretha Franklin 's I Say
Little Prayer, Herb Alpert 's This
Guy's in Love with You and nearly all of Dionne Warwick 's 60s classics. The story continues with a look at Bacharach's early songwriting achievements and his pairing with lyricist Hal David. The duo recall their first big hits - Marty Robbins 's The Story of My Life (1957) and Perry Como 's Magic Moments (1958).

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
