: Icons Revisited - Elton John

9/10. Johnnie Walker continues a survey of previously aired profiles of iconic pop stars with Paul Sexton 's 60th-birthday tribute to pop giant Elton John , who gives an extensive interview in this programme from March 2007. The once glam music mogul has sold an estimated 250 million records, many of them with lyricist Bernie Taupin , who also reflects on his collaborator's output. Fanning the flames of festiveness are Rod Stewart , Brian Wilson , Kiki Dee , Rufus Wainwright , Jake Shears (of Scissor Sisters), guitarists Davey Johnstone and Caleb Quayle , and Philip Norman. (Revised repeat)

: Paul Morley's Guide to Musical Genres

1/6. Galvanised by the challenges of categorising modern popular music, Paul Morley tackles today's twisted world of genres, beginning with psych-folk. Nancy Elizabeth and Tunng's Sam Genders cast light on this 1960s hybrid, while Martin Carthy and the Watersons, Billy Bragg and Robyn Hitchcock help to trace its roots.

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.
