: Alexis Korner: Rhythm and Blues Champion

New series 1/3. Radio 2 pays tribute to blues musician and broadcaster Alexis Korner (1928-84), who is generally seen as the catalyst for the 1960s British blues explosion that greatly influenced the Rolling Stones, the Animals, Led Zeppelin and many others. The series starts with a look at Korner's troubled early life, his role in the 1950s blues and skiff le scenes in London's Soho, and his championing of American blues masters. Expect to hear a tape of him performing in his front room with Muddy Waters and Otis Spann. Contributors include Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, guitarists Andy Fraser, Danny Thompson and Big Jim Sullivan, trombonist Chris Barber, musician Zoot Money, and, in a new interview recalling his early days at Korner's Ealing Club, Mick Jagger, whose musician brother Chris Jagger presents this show.

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.
