: I Will Not Let You Go -the Bohemian Rhapsody Story

Another chance to hear a November 2005 programme celebrating the 30th anniversary of Queen's fourth charted (and career-defining) single Bohemian Rhapsody, which spent nine weeks at number one in the UK before Abba's Mamma Mia dethroned it in late January 1976. Featuring a full-throttle, detailed tribute complete with cover versions, input by Brian May , Roger Taylor ,
Ben Elton and producer Roy Thomas Baker, and an archive interview with Freddie Mercury, whose family members also speak.

: That Western Swing Thing

3/5. Asleep at the Wheel frontman Ray Benson traces the history of the music genre with which his Texas band is most associated:
Western swing. The story continues with a visit to the normally quiet
Texas panhandle town of Turkey for its annual April weekend celebrations devoted to former resident and massively influential bandleader, musician and songwriter Bob Wills (1905-75). Benson hears from Wills's daughter Rosetta, with personal recollections by members of Wills's band the Texas Playboys.

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.
