As well as sharing their insights on all things dance, our time-travelling trio cover all the music and film highlights that the year tossed our way, relive Janet and Justin’s jaw-dropping moment at the Superbowl and talk teary goodbyes for Friends and Sex and the City.

They also look back on how David Beckham became a brand and debate who the year’s biggest bad-influencers were – the addicted gamers who were pushing Grand Theft Auto or fans of fiercely divisive footwear fetish the Ugg Boot?

A retrospective marking the 80th birthday in 2020 of legendary singer Dionne Warwick that looks back at her very best performances over the years at the BBC.

Join Grace Dent on a televisual trip of a lifetime as she explores the sights, sounds and schedules of the great British summer.

Join Grace Dent on a televisual trip of a lifetime as she explores the sights, sounds and schedules of the great British summer. Grace’s epic journey covers everything that informs our attitudes to summertime, from the travel shows of the 60s and 70s, which first brought the world’s finest resorts into our living rooms, to Del and Rodney Trotter fooling about abroad and the high jinks of Hi-de-Hi!

She explores the influence that holiday camp staples like beauty contests and talent shows had on primetime programmes like Seaside Special, which attracted stars as iconic as Abba and Grace Jones. Away from the glitz and glamour, there’s a look at the notorious Notting Hill Carnival of 1976, where a celebration of colour ended in rioting that changed Britain’s race laws forever, and a trip to Ibiza in the 80s, where young Brits were discovering new ways of getting away from it all. Also abroad are the then-young cast of EastEnders, with a young Grant Mitchell showing how to hit the clubs of Spain in epic style – and of course, sun, sea and soap means a look at the show that really burned the BBC – Eldorado.

A look at 2005's film, music and TV highlights, including the return of Doctor Who.

Angela Scanlon, Russell Kane and Tracy-Ann Oberman explore 2005's film, music and TV highlights, including a new Doctor Who and Paula Radcliffe winning the London Marathon.

Angela Scanlon’s fellow time-travellers are comedian Russell Kane and actress Tracy-Ann Oberman. Together they explore all of 2005’s film, music and TV highlights, which include a new Doctor Who - back with a bang for the first time in years, with Christopher Ecclestone at the helm of the Tardis, until he promptly regenerated into David Tennant. Also new to our screens was The Apprentice, with Sir Alan Sugar firing off on all cylinders. It was the year that supermodel Kate Moss redefined festival chic and hit the headlines with her relationship with Pete Doherty - a relationship almost as problematic as the one Dirty Den and Chrissie Watts were experiencing in EastEnders. Love was also in the air for Elton John, Prince Charles and Brangelina – and the nation took Paula Radcliffe to their hearts when she won the London Marathon - in spite of an unexpected pit stop.

Grace Dent embarks on a televisual trip back in time by setting the remote control for December 1995 and serving up an irreverent look back at the festive viewing options that faced the nation in the past.

Exploring how much what is shown on our screens has changed involves some deep diving into EastEnders’ annual festival of gloom to find that Arthur Fowler is behind bars and Pat Butcher is being lusted after by Roy and Frank. Grace also discovers that TV schedulers of the time appeared to have sex on the brain, with a surprisingly high number of seasonal shows featuring subjects and scenes that would make a family audience in 2020 blush with embarrassment.

There is also an in-depth look at infidelity in the morally questionable sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart, we join Hetty Wainthropp on her very first BBC investigation and go trapezing on a hot-air balloon with a truly spectacular Record Breakers challenge. And we remind ourselves of the genius of the late, great Rik Mayall – here reading Jack and the Beanstalk on Jackanory for an audience of real Young Ones as only he could.

We had David Blaine over here and living in a box, S Club 7 becoming party poopers and Madonna unsure what she liked best - Britain or Britney?

Grace Dent invites you to lose yourself on a joyful journey back through the BBC archives, celebrating the broadcaster's song and dance extravaganzas of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s – in many ways, the fantastic forerunners to Strictly Come Dancing. They were fun, family-focused and had fondue levels of cheesiness as well as a host of stars such as Cilla Black, Cliff Richard, Lulu, Twiggy and Shirley Bassey. Also featured are some of the biggest dance troupes of the time, including Pan’s People and The Young Generation, one of whose members gets special attention - a pre-Blue Peter Lesley Judd.

All the weird but usually rather wonderful musical performances that Grace has uncovered existed in a strange parallel universe to the pop charts of the time – not remotely cool, even then, but looking back the only way to describe them is ‘fabulous’.
