Amanda Ghost interviews the original female singer/songwriter, Joni Mitchell , who is about to release her first album of new material since 1998.
Singularly reflective, experimental and sophisticated, the Canadian-born, jazz-influenced folk giant has also nurtured a successful career as a visual artist. Now 63, she remains best known for the songs Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi and Help Me, and enjoys an intense near-cult following. This two-part tribute features Mitchell in an intimate conversation in which she discusses the many aspects of a career spanning four decades. Producer Paul Sexton

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

- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
