: Radio 1's Stories

2/10. A review of the past decade, continuing with 2001.

Radio 1's Stories 9.00pm Radio 1
The BBC loves its retrospective programmes, and here's the latest - a snappy year-by-year romp through the century so far. In this second episode, Nick Grimshaw, various celebs and an assortment of vox pops focus on 2001, an eventful year when 9/11 shocked the world, the Strokes reignited the vogue for skinny jeans and the iPod made music more portable than ever. Being Radio 1, this is weighted towards a younger audience than the usual Spangles and Spacehoppers nostalgia-fests and proves that, despite their lack of a decent name, the "noughties" have (almost) as strong a cultural identity as previous decades.

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.
