Series contrasting original genuine soul with contemporary hip-hop and neo-R&B, including an album spotlight on Love Wars - the 1983 release by Womack and Womack (husband-and-wife duo Cecil and Linda Womack ). Reminiscent of 1960s soul epitomised by Sam Cooke and Otis Redding , the LP did particularly well in Britain. NME critics voted it fourth best album of 1984, while its title track reached 14 in the pop charts and topped NME's list of the year's best singles, with Melody Maker ranking it as 1984's second-best behind Two Tribes.

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.
