From Luton Streets to Jersey Shores


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.
For most Americans, New Jersey was the "stinking state - the most densely populated and worst polluted state in the USA. But for one Luton teenager listening to the music of Bruce Springsteen , it became impossibly glamorous. Twenty years on, writer Sarfraz Manzoor makes the pilgrimage to New Jersey, using Springsteen's lyrics as his guide, to discover the landscape of his youthful imagination. There he finds that, after decades of being the butt of so many jokes, the "Garden State" is reinventing itself by capitalising on the mythology Springsteen has created. Producer Mohit Bakaya

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.
