The Art and Times of the Guitar There are few places in the world that haven't reverberated to the sound of the guitar; from dimly-lit cellars to the great concert halls, the box with the beat can enchant audiences and draw fame and fortune within reach of the devotee and the dilettante. Robert Sandall explores the intricacies of the world's most commonplace instrument - a story that takes him from Leeds. England to
Nashville, USA and culminates in a recital from another planet. Producer WILL CANTOPHER. Stereo

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.
