: Holloway Dreams -the Joe Meek Story

New series 1/3. Tom Robinson presents a special tribute to
Joe Meek , Britain's most prized independent record producer of the pre-Swinging 1960s era. A studio pioneer and an eccentric, Meek manufactured uniquely futuristic sounds, often from homemade devices and heightened by echo and reverb. His most famous work remains the Tornados' 1962 transatlantic number one instrumental Telstar. Other beneficiaries of the Meek touch include Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, Billy Fury , Gene Vincent , the Honeycombs, Petula Clark , Jess Conrad and Sounds Incorporated. But Meek led a life troubled by paranoia, depression and the then illegality of homosexuality. On 3 February 1967 Meek fatally shot both his landlady and himself. Producer Graham Pass

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
