2/2. Tamla-Motown specialist
Adam White rewinds to the spring of 1965 to recall the Detroit label's star-studded 21-day UK Tour, which coincided with the label's official British launch despite having already conquered the charts here in 1964 with smash hits by The Supremes and Mary Wells on its Stateside label. This edition recalls the Ready Steady Go! TV special hosted by Motown crusader Dusty Springfield, and features recollections of the tour by Mary Wilson (ex-Supremes), Otis Williams (The Temptations), Pete Moore (ex-Miracles). This two-parter first aired in 2005.

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.
