Jeru: the Gerry Mulligan Story
It is exactly 50 years since saxophonist Gerry Mulligan established his
"pianoless" quartet featuring trumpeter Chet Baker. Regarded as the most revolutionary modern jazz group of the early 1950s, it consolidated Mulligan's work, which had begun with his arrangements for Gene Krupa ,
Claude Thomhill and Miles Davis. In the first of a new, four-part series, Alyn Shipton explores the formation of the quartet, with contributions from Lee Konitz , Gil Evans , Ira Gitler and the group's surviving founder member, drummer Chico Hamilton.

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.

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.
