1/2. The most famous album of all time - the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club
Band - was released in the UK 40 years ago yesterday. Not without its detractors and now critically eclipsed by some of the band's other works, the immaculately produced concept LP nevertheless altered the pop landscape. Its Grammy-winning engineer, Geoff Emerick , heads back to Abbey Road Studios to reveal the innovative techniques that resulted in the now-iconic album's unique sound. With the analogue four-track equipment originally used in 1967, modern acts such as Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Travis, the Fratellis, the Fray and Richard Ashcroft record their versions of one of the famous twelve tracks. Part 2 airs in two weeks' time. Producer Des Shaw

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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.
