3/6. Music enthusiast David Quantick explains the ins and outs of jazz. Armed with fake archive footage, adverts and recordings, he offers comically constructed and occasionally untrue explanations of the American genre, continuing with Miles Davis, swing and jazz piano.
3/6. A scripted comedy-clip show featuring distinctively camp comedian Alan Carr, who is thrown into bizarre escapades in which things inevitably go wrong. Tonight's instalment finds Alan chained to a wall in a Colombian cellar with a monkey for company, and weaves archive snatches of Jack Dee, Peter Kay and Tommy Cooper.
American radio oldies and nostalgia, tonight featuring US chart hits from 1981, a year of no transatlantic number ones, though the Human League's Don't You Want Me topped the US charts in mid-1982. Featuring discs by Heart,
Christopher Cross and Don McLean.
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.
