Better Get It in Your Soul
Brian Priestley continues his series exploring the work of composer, bassist and bandleader Charles Mingus. In 1960 Mingus organised an alternative festival at Newport, with drummer Max Roach. Mingus and Roach collaborated again in 1962 - with Duke Ellington - on a trio recording, Money Jungle. In the same year Mingus assembled a big band for an ill-fated concert at New York's Town Hall, but it was a new 11-piece group that provided the vehicle for his studio masterpiece of 1963, The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady. With contributions from John Handy ,
Roland Hanna , Dannie Richmond , Charlie Mariano , George Wein and from Mingus himself.

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.
