: Mark Lamarr's Alternative 60s

3/3. Radio 2 presents a profile of legendary rock 'n' roll icon Johnny Hallyday (born
Jean-Philippe Smet ), who in 1960 emerged as France's response to Elvis Presley , though gyrating to the then-popular French ye-ye music style. Raised by his aunt and never sent to school, the Legion d'Honneur recipient has sold more than
100 million albums and continues to perform for hundreds of thousands of fans. Discussing his legacy are singers
Charles Aznavour , Frangoise Hardy , Petula Clark , Line Renaud and Sylvie Vartan , whom Hallyday married and shared a well-publicised career with. This final instalment looks at the singer's enduring popularity in France, where he's just released an album of blues material and where his 60thbirthday tour played to over 500,000 fans.

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.
