Ronnie Scott's Club


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.
The First 25 Years
A quarter of a century ago this week Ronnie Scott launched what is still today London's only regular late night jazz venue. Neither he, nor the club's manager Pete King , had a master plan for the long-term future success of the club. 'We just started in a small place in Gerrard Street; it was just a place for us to play - local guys - me in particular! No one else would book us!'
In the company of John Junkin Ronnie looks back over the years and recalls anecdotes involving some of the personalities who have become legends in the club's unique reputation. Also included, from BBC archives, are performances at the club from Oscar Peterson , Sonny RoUins Sarah Vaughan , Dizzy Gillespie Kenny Clarke -

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.
