Arena

The Everly Brothers: Songs of Innocence and Experience The first of two films about great names of American popular music. Tonight, the Everly Brothers, whose hits like 'Cathy's clown', 'Bye bye love' and 'Wake up little
Susie' defined a generation. Yet their formidable succession of bestsellers had its origins deep in the musical traditions of rural America.
Taught to sing from their earliest years, the brothers were raised in a unique cross-current of musical influences, from Appalachian harmony duos to black country blues singers. Their father Ike was an influential guitar picker and hosted the Everly Family Radio Show in the Mid West in the 40s and 50s. It was here that Don and Phil made their public debut. Arena retraces the Everlys' journey, from guitar picking in Kentucky with Ike's friend
MOSE REGUR to Tennessee where their early hits were penned by FELICE AND BOUDLEAUX BRYANT. Meet their legendary producer CHET ATKINS , architect of the 'Nashville Sound', and follow their career from their heyday in the 50s to the present day.

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.
