3/3. Jamie Cullum celebrates jazz label Blue Note Records, started in 1939 by Alfred Lion , with Francis Wolff. This final edition looks at the rise of modern jazz and Lion and Wolff's struggles to keen an indie label solvent, ultimately selling up in 1969. But after a quiet 1970s, the back catalogue of riches caught the ears of club DJs and purveyors of hip-hop sampling. Current Blue Note president Bruce Lundvall relaunched the label in 1985, with a new era of artists such as Dianne Reeves and, more recently, Norah Jones. ..

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.
