: Composer of the Week: Miles Davis

5/5. Despite a prolonged period of illness and withdrawal from public life, Miles Davis 's last years saw him once again change the face of jazz composition as he explored rock-fusion and funk. It's About That Time experimented with tape editing, an experiment that was extended in Miles Runs the Voodoo Down - a track that pointed to ideas found in Davis's last recordings, for example Star on Cicely and What It Is. Donald Macleod looks at how Davis's irascible temper accelerated his death, and he considers how
Kind of Blue, in particular, changed the way that jazz has been written and performed for almost half a century. Repeated on Thursday at 12 midnight

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.
