: Mark Lamarr's Redneck Music

New series 1/4. Mark Lamarr tackles simpleton-and-shotgun stereotypes of redneck country music in this series devoted to the sounds of the mountains, the hillbilly, the banjo and the moonshine still. Bolstered by the recordings of Earl Scruggs, Charlie Louvin, Hank Williams III, Gretchen Peters, Joe Ely and Tom Russell, the series illustrates how the genre owes as much to black slavery as does the blues, as poor whites forged a new sound with banjo playing learned from African slaves. The series starts in what is considered redneck's birthplace - the Tennessee/Virginia border town of Bristol in Appalachia, where in 1927 the renowned Carter family and Jimmie Rodgers were signed to Victor Records.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
