William Dart hosts an hour of rock, pop, country or folk music; each programme focusing on a new release or two and placing these in the context of an artist's career to date. His encyclopaedic knowledge and gargantuan record collection allow him to find hidden gems and surprising links. With plenty of humour along the way, William gives a serious treatment to these vital forms of music.
New Horizons will have three series in 2013.
Series One: 3 March - 5 May (9 programmes - no programme on 31 March)
Series Two: 16 June – 25 August (11 programmes)
Series Three: 13 October – 15 December (10 programmes)

Episodes of New Horizons are available as audio on demand from 1 July 2012.
New Horizons has been on air for over thirty years. Its first broadcast in April 1980 was heralded by a cover on the New Zealand Listener. The albums featured on that cover - albums by Ry Cooder, XTC, The Kinks and Ray Davies, Sparks, Randy Newman, Lou Reed, Joni Mitchell, Elvis Costello and Jonathan Richman - were chosen by William. The artists have mostly continued to have flourishing careers and have been featured many times on the programme over the years. It just goes to show that William knows how to pick'em.
