: The Birth of British Rock 'n' Roll

2/2. Steve Harley celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first UK chart appearance of a British rock 'n' roll single. Tommy Steele 's 1956 number-13 debut hit, Rock with the Caveman, signalled a response to the American sound established a few months earlier by Elvis Presley 's Heartbreak Hotel (and two years before that by Bill Haley and His Comets), culminating in Cliff Richard 's Move It! in 1958. This two-parter recalls the distinctively British, pre-Beatles rock 'n' roll sound, with input from John Barry , Joe Brown , Chas McDevitt , Cliff Richard ,
Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch (of the Shadows), Tommy Steele ,
Bert Weedon , Marty Wilde and others.

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.
