: No Limits

Lakeland Hotel
The problem with watching the world's fastest rock show is that you can't even pop out to put the kettle on without missing miles of music and mirth.
So in the No Limits 'Happy Hour' tonight, Tony Baker and Jenny Powell serve up the usual selection of rock cocktails with the added incentive of highlights from the first eight shows of the series. But this heady brew won't get in the way of a sober look at this week's
British and American charts. Associate producer JONATHAN KING Production PETER HAMILTON BBC North West
and at 4.00-4.40
No Limits for Erasure
Everyone knows Erasure - don't they? So, what band was Vince Clarke in? Where's Yazoo? What's
Assembly doing? And who is Andy Bell anyway?
All questions answered as Jenny Powell takes the No Limits cameras for a Bank Holiday burst of Brighton rock with Erasure live on stage at the Brighton Dome.

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.
