: You Win Again - the Bee Gees Story

1/2. Paul Gambaccini profiles the phenomenally successful English brethren pop act the Bee Gees, who flaunted their chart potential first in Australia with the 1966 gem Spicks and Specks. Their global 1967 double-A-side breakthrough - New York Mining Disaster 1941/1 Can't See Nobody - triggered comparisons with the Beatles despite a decidedly more melancholic and melodramatic sound, which they would reinvent tirelessly across five decades. Maurice Gibb died in 2003, but surviving brothers Barry and Robin Gibb reflect on a career marked by lush ballads and the trio's own brand of psychedlia, R&B and disco, plus collaborative successes with others, such as pop divas Barbra Streisand , Dionne Warwick and Diana Ross. There's also a rare interview with Bee Gees manager Robert Stigwood.

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.
