2/2. Radio 2's Liverpool season turns its attention to the city's top 20th-century export, the Beatles, exploring the 1960s pop-rock band's impact on the public's attitudes towards style, sex, drugs and worldly matters. With recollections and thoughts from the everyday fans and fanatics for whom the Beatles played a significant role in their formative, adolescent years.
Rumon Gamba conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra with soprano Elizabeth Watts and tenor Paul O'Neill in an operatic programme featuring works by Puccini, Donizetti and Massenet. Classic Buskers (aka Michael Copley and Ian Moore ) perform Handel on recorder and accordion.
Presented by tenor Jonathan Ansell.
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.
