3/3. Paul Gambaccini celebrates the 50-year show-business career of easy-listening superstar Johnny Mathis , who pierced the rock 'n' roll airwaves of the late 50s with a run of smooth and creamy ballads, most notably
Wonderful! Wonderful!, It's Not for Me to Say, Chances Are and Misty. The album Johnny's Greatest Hits ranks behind only Dark Side of the Moon in number of weeks on the US album chart. Among the highlights covered in this final chapter are Mathis's disco-era hits - including the 1978 US/UK big-hit duet with Deniece Williams , Too Much Too Little Too Late and the 1979 UK hit Gone, Gone, Gone - and his collaboration with Henry Mancini. Plus input from Mathis.

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
