: Jazz Library

The King of Swing, and one of the finest of all jazz clarinettists, Benny Goodman recorded prolifically, and was as dazzlingly talented in a big band setting as in a small group. He encouraged multiracial bands and helped bring the brilliant guitarist
Charlie Christian to a wider audience. Alyn Shipton is joined by John Dankworth , who shares some of his keen insights into Goodman's style, his selection of key recordings and his personal reminiscences of Benny, with whom he played for the first time in 1949. Producer Alyn Shipton

: Jazz on 3

Chick Corea/Gary Burton
Jez Nelson presents a gig featuring pianist
Chick Corea and vibes player Gary Burton, reunited 35 years after the release of their celebrated 1972 ECM album Crystal Silence. Playing at London's Barbican Hall in June this year, the pair perform music from the original album as well as new material. An important member of Miles Davis's late-60s band, Chick Corea played in Anthony
Braxton's avant-garde group Circle before changing direction to form the jazz-rock fusion group Return to Forever. He went on to play acoustic and electronic music with musicians including Michael Brecker, John Pattitucci, Bob Berg and recently banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck. His partnership in the 1970s with Gary Burton yielded some of his most enduring acoustic music. Producer Joby Waldman

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.
