: Mr Simon's Big Trip

Quintessentially American folk-pop singer/songwriter Paul Simon spent an impressionable 13 months in England prior to the late 1965 release of his and Art Garfunkel's era-defining single The Sound of Silence. Radio 2 explores this period when Simon went 'missing'. The New York troubadour arrived in London in April 1964, and spent what was in essence a gap year bumming around England, playing tiny folk venues, meeting people such as Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy and Leon Redbone, and writing songs such as "April Come She Will", "A Most Peculiar Man", "Leaves That Are Green", "Blessed", "Kathy's Song", "I Am a Rock", "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine" and "Homeward Bound". This programme recalls Simon's 'gap year' with input from Brian Protheroe, Al Stewart and Martin Carthy, whom Simon often would hear performing "Scarborough Fair". And expect to hear Simon's previously unaired 1965 track "The Northern Line", recorded in Exeter. Music choices: page 120.

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.
