But both his chart success and status as a music legend swelled well beyond his death, particularly in the UK.
Steve Harley explores the many aspects of his career, with input from'members of the Crickets, his parents, manager Norman Petty , Paul McCartney , George Harrison , Hank Marvin , Lonnie Donegan , Cliff Richard and Roger Daltrey.

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.
