: You'll Never Walk Alone

Continuing Radio 2's Liverpool season, actress Sue Johnston explores the enduring appeal, history and cultural significance for her home town of the anthemic ballad
"You'll Never Walk Alone", which was first heard on Broadway in the 1945 Richard Rodgers/Oscar Hammerstein II musical "Carousel". It was since recorded by stars as diverse as Frank Sinatra and Placido Domingo. But its most famous rendering - and especially for Liverpool FC fans - is Gerry and the Pacemakers' 1963 number-one single.
Featuring input from Gerry Marsden (Gerry and the Pacemakers), Ian McCulloch
(Echo and the Bunnymen), Ian Broudie (the Lightning Seeds), Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand) and 96-year-old Christine Johnson, who sang the song in the first Carousel production.

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.
