: Motown Record Producers

In a special one-off edition linked to their occasional tributes to studio greats, Richard Allinson and producer Steve Levine continue
Radio 2's 50th-anniversary Motown celebrations with a look at the talent behind the label's enduring sound. Featuring new interviews with Smokey Robinson , secretary and songwriter Janie Bradford (Money (That's What I Want)), songwriter/ producer Frank Wilson , Bob Babbitt (of session act the Funk Brothers), Abdul "Duke" Fakir (of the Four
Tops) and, among others, dynamic trio Eddie Holland , Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland. Using rarely heard studio takes, the programme charts the transition from dramatic 1960s soul-pop (Reach Out I'll Be There) to the more urban and LPled sound of the early-1970s (What's Going On). Producer Steve Levine

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
