Country, roots and Americana, with archive and modern recordings.
Tonight's quest is American singer/ songwriter Ryan Adams , who has dabbled in modern country, rock, hip-hop and punk. Joining him in the studio is guitarist Neal Casal.
6/10. Retro rocker Suzi Quatro spins rock 'n' roll gems of America's pre-Beatles years. With a showcase of independent record label End, featuring studio recordings by the Chantels, Little Anthony and the Imperials, and the Flamingos.
4/6. Mark Riley unlocks the vault of the BBC archives to revisit rock interviews given at special points in music history. He continues with Paul Gambaccini 's 1976 interview with Marvin Gaye , who talks bitterly about Motown king Berry Gordy and the company's allegedly bad handling of his royalties. He speaks better of Tammi Terrell and Smokey Robinson , and recalls the demands of singing his 1963 classic Can I Get a Witness?
3/8. Late-night frivolity as Vic Reeves invites audience members to query a panel of famous people on seemingly mundane subjects such as eBay, family life, picking one's nose and lying. Those hoping to provide witty and unpredictable responses include Alan Carr and Jools Holland.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
