: Sgt Pepper's 40th Anniversary

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

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.
