Continuing the definitive history of pop. 48: It's a Steal
In the mid-80s the advent of the sampler revolutionised music, and dance music in particular. It also placed the ability to create music firmly in the court of the untutored. In the new open season on exposed beats and breaks, what of the musicians who created the original music? With Bill Drummond ,
Coldcut, Anne Dudley , Dave Dorrell , Pascal Gabriel ,
Graham Crabbe and Andrew Jenkins.
Producer Paul Kent
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
