1/2. Radio 2's Liverpool season turns its attention to the city's top 20th-century export, the Beatles, exploring the perfectly packaged 1960s pop-rock band's impact on the public's attitudes towards music, style, humour and sex. In this two-part oral history series, fans document in their own words the cultural significance of the band and how they affected every aspect of their lives.
Gavin Sutherland conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra with Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year Julie Fowlis , pop-opera trio the Diamond Divas and pianist Philip Martin. Presented by Paul Gambaccini , from LSO St Luke's.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
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.
