2/2. Veteran cinema critic Barry Norman explores film music from the composer's standpoint. This concluding part looks at Hollywood, with segments on the early talkies, big emotive theme-based scores - including those by Max Steiner (Gone with the Wind, 1939) and Maurice Jarre (Doctor Zhivago, 1965) - and the now-standard use of pop tracks (Saturday Night
Fever, 1977). He also analyses the works of Elmer Bernstein, Philip Glass, John Williams, George Fenton, Hans Zimmer and Bernard Herrmann, who is best known for his masterful collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock.

9.30 Hey! Bo Diddley
New series 1/3. Roger Daltrey profiles legendary - Mississippi-born singer/ guitarist Bo Diddley (born Otha Ellas Bates McDaniel), who uniquely imbibed rock 'n' roll with the blues and influenced diverse acts such as the Smiths, U2, Bruce Springsteen, and George Michael. His double-A-sided 1955 debut single - Bo Diddley/I'm a Man - reached number one on the US R&B chart. Contributors include Dave Davies, Tom McGuinness (of Manfred Mann), Wilko Johnson (of Dr Feelgood), Marshall Chess and Bo Diddley, whose name refers to a one-stringed African guitar.

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.
