1: George Melly - 'Good time George', Britain's most flamboyant jazz singer. Entertainer, high-liver, collector, lover of shocking suits, raunchy ties and broad hats, teetotaller 'except for wine, port, sherry and champagne', the dean of decadence, he is also much admired as a blues historian, modern-art expert, book critic, film critic and celebrated autobiographer.

Raising Your Voice
So the multi-national conglomerates who dominate the publishing industry won't print what you want to read? Do it yourself. You may not get rich but it has never been easier to set up a small press. Paul Allen reports on the independent Newcastle imprint with star poets on its list, the co-op in the Yorkshire coalfield with a burning commitment to the stories of ordinary people, and the one-man poetry publisher from a Pennine valley trying to persuade hard-nosed commercial booksellers to stock his product. Producer DAVE SHEASBY

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.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
