: He Shall Overcome:Pete Seeger at 90

Steve Earle celebrates folk giant
Pete Seeger , who turned 90 in May. A banjo pro whose uncompromising songs about civil rights, unions and ordinary Americans kept him off US TV and radio for years, Seeger wrote (or co-wrote) If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song), Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season) and Where Have All the Flowers Gone? He also enjoyed success as part of Greenwich Village folk revival act the Weavers
(Goodnight Irene), who influenced Peter, Paul and Mary. The programme features input by Roger McGuinn (ex-Byrds), Donovan, Nanci Griffith and Tom Paxton.

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.
