: I Love 1975

In this instalment of the repeated series focusing on the 1970s, The Sweeney star Dennis Waterman presents a look back at the year when heart-throbs such as motorcycling world champion Barry Sheene, singer David Essex, Scottish pop band the Bay City Rollers and the Fonz (Henry Winkler's character in the hit US comedy series Happy Days) set pulses racing. It was also a year when Charlie Girl, Brut and Hai Karate were the fragrances of choice, and ITV's World of Sport provided a regular feast of seventies-style British wrestling that captured the enthusiasm of Saturday-afternoon television watchers.
Meanwhile, the Steven Spielberg-directed Jaws terrorised the big screen and the high-camp musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show had audiences around the country on their feet and doing a dance called The Time Warp.

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.
