Tonight's programme, recorded at Hazlewood's Somerset farm, features highlights from Sunday's performance by Hazlewood with the National Youth
Orchestra at the Glastonbury
Festival. Plus music by Kool and the Gang, the Prodigy and Elgar.

: Classic Singles

3/6. As the pop single continues to hold its own in the digital era, famed producer Toni Visconti showcases six 45rpm records for their lasting significance. The survey continues with the Boomtown Rats' 1979 number one / Don't Like Mondays. A big, theatrical summer hit in the UK, the single failed to make a dent in the mainstream charts of America, home to the shooting incident that inspired Bob Geldof to write the song in the first place.

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.
