During the freezing winter of 1962/63 Bob Dylan made his first trip to London, having been spotted the previous summer in a Greenwich Village basement by BBC director Phillip Saville , who invited him to appear alongside David Warner in a BBC play Madhouse on Castle Street. Bob Harris tells the story of Dylan's two-month visit to Britain, from his stay with Martin Carthy to cutting an LP (in a Charing Cross Road record-shop basement) under the pseudonym Blind Boy Grunt, to writing songs such as Don't Think Twice, It's Alright and Bob Dylan 's Dream.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
