1/4. The Second Summer of Love
Zoë Ball recalls the late-80s music-and-fashion movement known as "acid house", whose melding of Detroit and Chicago house sounds with a 1960s drug sensibility resulted in one of the more radical pop-cultural shifts of the past 20 years. This first part rewinds to 1988, when the ecstasy-fuelled rave scene was in its vital - and much scandalised
- early stages. Contributors include DJs Pete Tong, Lisa Loud , Sonique, Nicky Holloway , Mr C and others.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
