Performing this evening is Winnipeg, Manitoba-born country-blues singer/songwriter Romi Mayes , known for gritty and intensely personal songs of sex, drugs, love and life on the road. She discusses her new album Achin in Yer Bones.
4/4. Country music and comedy merge in this near-surreal experiment featuring the songs and philosophising of Colorado-born outlaw singer Wilson Dixon. Tonight Wilson recalls his Cripple Creek upbringing and his so-called dysfunctional family.
2/4. Another chance to hear a 2008 sitcom starring unwaveringly dry and droll Miranda Hart as a life-embracing, self-effacing woman who uses her inheritance cash to buy a joke shop despite her lack of business sense. Featuring Patricia Hodge as Miranda's bothered mother. In this week's episode Miranda tries to prove she can get a proper job away from the joke shop.
American radio hits from the 1950s onwards, tonight with a spotlight on chart singles from 1975, considered a low point in pop history. Featuring Grand Funk Railroad, Bruce Springsteen ,
Ben E King, Carpenters, The Doobie Brothers, Orleans and BJ Thomas.
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.
