1/6. Another chance to hear a 2007 series in which Adrian Edmondson stars as as a disgracefully ageing punk rocker and divorcee who moves in with his kids, much to their annoyance. The sitcom co-stars Ben Elton and features punk-era hits.

1998's Taming the Tiger. Singularly reflective, experimental and sophisticated, the Canadian-born, jazz-influenced folk giant has also nurtured a successful career as a visual artist. She remains best known for the songs Both Sides Now, Big Yellow Taxi, Free Man in Paris and Help Me, and LPs such as Blue (1971), Court and Spark (1974) and The Hissing of Summer Lawns (1975).The singer, who enjoys an intense near-cult following, discusses the many aspects of a career spanning four decades.

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.
