: Soundscape of 1969

Johnnie Walker presents the third annual Radio 2 soundscape, tonight recalling 1969 with an audio collage mixing archive recordings and newsreels with music and. newspaper clips. The decade's final year was marked by momentous contrasts, from the hippy spirit of Woodstock, the peace activism of John and Yoko, and the optimism surrounding Neil Armstrong 's
"giant leap for mankind", to the violence and despair of Vietnam and Londonderry. Also defining the era were radio hits such as Zager and Evans's In the Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus), Thunderclap Newman 's
Something in the Air and the Archies'Sugar Sugar. Producer Trevor Dann

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.
