2/2. Another chance to hear a March 2007 two-parter in which Amanda Ghost interviews singer/ songwriter Joni Mitchell. In this final part Mitchell discusses her legacy - including perhaps her most revered LP, Blue (1971) - and what compelled her to record Shine-her first album of new material since 1998. Other treats include a new version of Big Yellow Taxi.
New series 1/4. Droll and unsentimental rock and pop observer David Ouantick presents a relatively poignant ode to the vinyl record album (aka LP), which first appeared as a 12-inch 33⅓rpm disc 60 years ago and is now experiencing a renaissance despite competition from CDs and downloads. Waxing lyrical are GO editor Dylan Jones , Bob Harris , ex-Sham 69 frontman Jimmy Pursey , lyricist Tim Rice , Bon Stanley
(of Saint Etienne), producer Pete Waterman , Joseph "Run" Simmons (of Run-DMC), singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

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.
