Soweto Kinch explores the musical heritage of the northern Manhattan district known as Harlem. The story continues with a look at the community's rich gospel tradition, the art, music and poetry of the Harlem Renaissance, and the successive thriving swing, bebop and R&B scenes. Plus tales of the famous Savoy Ballroom, late-night clubs such as Minton's and the Uptown House, where Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie forged a new jazz style. And memories of politician Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) and Sugar Hill resident and civil rights activist and intellectual WEB DuBois (1868-1963).
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.
