We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Star artists and guest DJs join Adrian Love to review the new releases.
Adrian says: 'The idea of Roundtable is a good one, which seems to work very successfully. It has just the right combination of speech, music and opinion, and I see it as a thinking review show. which goes perhaps a little deeper than say Juke Box Jury did. We have a very mixed bag of guests coming up. most of whom are in the music business, but I'd like to try and expand the range to include people not necessarily connected with the pop world, who I feel would have a lot of interesting things to say about the music anyway. Everybody on Roundtable should say what they really think, and I hope the guests will always feel that they can be totally honest. If I disagree with them. I'll say so. and of course, the Radio 1 listeners might not agree with what we say either. My personal tastes are bound to emerge when I express an opinion, but then with music, one mans fish is always another man's poisson.'

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.
