: Classic Singles

4/6. As the pop single continues to hold its own in the digital era,
Tony Visconti singles out six 45rpm hits for their lasting significance. The survey continues with Blondie's widely adored transatlantic number one smash Heart of Glass. Their fifth UK chart hit, it marked a radical shift from their signature "new wave" sound, thanks to producer Mike Chapman 's controversial disco imprint, and finally broke the band in their native America. Characterised by Deborah Harry 's sensual delivery, Heart of Glass sold a million copies in the UK alone on the strength of 12 weeks in the charts in early 1979.

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.
