Another chance to hear last year's 50th anniversary observing of the day when 15-year-old Paul McCartney first met 16-year-old John Lennon. The casual event took place on 6 July 1957 following an outdoor church fete gig featuring Lennon's skiffle group the Quarrymen. Presented by Bob Harris, this nostalgia fest includes previously unaired recollections that McCartney shared with Lennon's half-sister Julia Baird. Plus interviews with Cynthia Lennon, Mike McCartney, and members of the Quarrymen.
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.
