JOHN PEEL writes: ' There are two clear-cut approaches to rock appreciation. The first is the "wow! this is just like the last album, wow! " method: the second follows the who are these twerps and what are they doing? " line. Adherents to the first discipline would not care for The Ruts, those of the second have identified them as the hardest band to poke their heads out of the New Wave in quite a spell. Their first single, "In a Rut ". was recorded for the London community organisation People Unite and it Is a gem. The Ruts' second Radio 1 session. produced by Tony Wislon , should not be missed.'

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.
