1/2. Stuart Maconie tells the story of Manchester-raised singer and lyricist
Steven Patrick Morrissey who, with guitarist/songwriter Johnny Marr , led the incomparably influential 80s pop-rock band the Smiths, purveyors of combined cheek, bitterness and melodramatic yearning. In 1987 Morrissey forged a solo career that, while less vital, has sustained and, by way of Latin America, expanded on an intense cult following. In a recent poll conducted by BBC2's The Culture Show, Morrissey trailed only
David Attenborough as Britain's greatest living icon. Contributors include Smiths producer Stephen Street , Smiths bass guitarist Andy Rourke , singers Preston (of the Ordinary Boys) and Badly Drawn Boy, Suggs, producer Tony Visconti and comedian/drummer Andrew Paresi , plus friends and fans. Producer Sarah Cuddon

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

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 obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.
