2/7. Stuart Maconie recalls critical moments in popular music. He journeys back to two particularly disturbing and gruesome events in August 1969, when members of Charles Manson 's clan - the so-called "Family" - murdered Roman Polanski's pregnant actress wife
Sharon Tate and several guests at her home near Beverly Hills. Two more murders followed the next evening. A frustrated rock star. Manson claimed he'd received messages from songs on the 1968 double LP, The Beatles. The motiveless deaths triggered a further atrophying of America's innocence and optimistic spirit.

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.
