: Malcolm McLaren's Life and Times in LA: a Radio Movie

As a follow-up to last year's survey of his native London, cultured cockney, musician, impresario and punk-rock catalyst Malcom McLaren turns his attention to Los Angeles, with entertainingly personal observations, memories and anecdotes. "Utterly and hopelessly seduced" by the city's various shades of glamour since his introductory three-day-turned-four-year visit, McLaren has been a regular visitor over the last 30 years. The programme features reminiscences from staying in short-term rentals, plush weekend apartments and hotels, falling in love with a famous film star, working with Steven Spielberg and doing so much more.
Producers Kate Bland and Chris O'Shaughnessy

: Holloway Dreams:the Joe Meek Story

3/3. Tom Robinson concludes a special tribute to 60s studio wiz and eccentric Joe Meek , who pioneered futuristic sounds, often from home-made devices and heightened by echo and reverb.
Meek produced an enormous and eclectic body of work but led a life troubled by paranoia, depression and the then illegality of homosexuality. In February 1967 Meek fatally shot both his landlady and himself.

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.
