Bob Harris marks the 50th anniversary of the day when 15-year-old Paul McCartney first met then 16-year-old John Lennon. The casual event took place on 6 July 1957 following an outdoor church fete gig featuring Lennon's skiffle group the Quarrymen. Tonight's nostalgia fest includes previously unaired recollections that McCartney shared with Lennon's half-sister Julia Baird. Plus interviews with Cynthia Lennon, Mike McCartney, musicologist Spencer Lee, Colin Hall - who worked as custodian of Mendips, where the young John Lennon lived with his Aunt Mimi - and Quarrymen members Rod Davis, John "Duff" Lowe, Len Garry and Colin Hanton.

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
