: Jakki Brambles

(See panel, left)

Name: Jakki Brambles Born: 1 March 1967 Home: Hertfordshire, after moving from Arran in 1987 First job: West Sound Radio, Ayr Radio 1: Joined last Thursday! Show: Weekend Early Show

Jakki Brambles was sucking a rusk in her pram when Radio 1 took to the air in 1967. Now she's 22 and the station's youngest and newest DJ. As the weekend Early Show's regular presenter she'll get used to seeing the sun rise over Broadcasting House. But this week she'll get an overdose of those early morning rays when she sits in for Adrian John, Monday to Friday 5.00am. Not bad for a humble lass living on the Scottish island of Arran, who became a DJ by accident: 'When I left school at 18, 1 wanted to earn enough money to travel abroad. So I wrote to my local radio station and got a job cleaning the toilets and making the tea. Five days after I started, a DJ walked out and they asked me to go on air. I was terrified, but I did the show even though I was being sick with nerves between links.'

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.
