Walk On By: the Story of Popular Song

The penultimate programme from the eight-part series that tracks the evolution of popular music.
Soundtrack. Broadway and Hollywood musicals have produced some of the greatest songs of all time, and the fortunes of many turgid shows and uninspiring films have been transformed by a hit tune. Tonight's programme examines the history of the show tune, from Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hammerstein to Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber and, finally, Disney, which in recent years has brought about the renaissance of the big movie song.
The stories behind such classic songs as "Night and Day",
"Over the Rainbow", "My Funny Valentine", "Somewhere", "Cabaret", "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and "Stayin' Alive" are told by, among others, Stephen Sondheim, Kander and Ebb, Tim Rice, Georgio Moroder, Robin Gibb and Alan Menken. Narrated by Clive Owen.

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.
