Johnnie Walker recalls the nine-month period from September 1966 to June
1967 when Seattle-born psychedelic-blues guitarist Jimi Hendrix lived in London, where he changed from a shy, penniless musician into a dynamic and starry force. With contributions from Eric Clapton , Robert Wyatt , Glenn Tilbrook , Pete Townshend , Eric Bibb and Gered Mankowitz , plus archive input from former Animals bass player
Chas Chandler , who is credited with discovering Hendrix. This programme aired first in 2005.
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.
