The G-Word

Another chance to hear Radio 2's ode to gothic rock (aka goth) - a genre of moody, introspective, ethereal, non-chirpy and at times droney music that emerged during the post-punk era of the late 1970s. Goths were swathed in black from head to toe, and identified with the "dark" pop of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, The Cure and Sisters of Mercy. Andrew Collins explores the origins and myths of goth, and looks at its modern incarnations (eg Marilyn Manson), including its cult pull with disaffected (and occasionally violent) suburban American youth. With input from
Banshees Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Severin , ex-chart star Gary Numan , Peter Hook (ex-Joy Division), film director Tim Burton and regulars of Soho's Batcave club: Peter Murphy and David J (of Bauhaus) and Jon Klein (of Specimen).

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.
