: Revelations: the Genesis Story

1/2. Chris Evans profiles rock group Genesis, who formed in 1967 as a rather straightforward band before morphing into one of the more high-definition exponents of "progressive" rock in the 1970s. Defined by elaborate, imaginative and often longwinded recordings and stage shows with a distinctly English character, the band featured lead singer and rock conceptualist Peter Gabriel , who jumped ship in 1975. Drummer Phil Collins replaced him at the mike, and saw the band transform its album-orientated sound (Foxtrot, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway) into something eventually more singles-chart-friendly (Follow You
FollowMe, Turn It on Again, Mama and the US number one Invisible Touch). The programme includes interviews with Gabriel, Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Steve Hackett. Producer John Sugar

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
