: Composer of the Week: Miles Davis

4/5. When John Coltrane left Miles Davis 's band in 1961, it seemed that no future group could match the perfection of their partnership.
But as Donald Macleod finds out, this spurred Davis on to a new challenge: he set about recruiting a new guintet, with such illustrious names as Herbie Hancock , Wayne Shorter and Ron Carter. The group's stylistic range, playing Davis's own pieces, was extraordinary, from the dawn of jazz rock on Eighty-One to the abstract freedom of Agitation. And Macleod hears how the tight structure of a conventional jazz piece like Seven Steps to Heaven was reinvented into the extended form of Davis's Stuff. Rptd from Thursday

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.
