: Come in from the Cold: the Return of Joni Mitchell

2/2. Singer/songwriter Amanda Ghost interviews the original female singer/songwriter, Joni Mitchell. 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 a near-cult intense following. In this final part Mitchell discusses her legacy - including perhaps her most revered LR Blue (1971) - and what compelled her to record the forthcoming release - her first album of new material since 1998, excerpts of which are aired for the first time tonight. Other treats include a new version of Big Yellow Taxi.

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.
