: Behind the Velvet Rope - Studio 54 Uncovered

Doggedly decorative and sometimes decadent pop darling Boy George charts the rise and fall of the ultimate disco, Studio 54, which opened its doors - to the dance-, drugs-, glamour-and sex-inclined of Manhattan's glitterati and to the city's fabulously presented hoi polloi - first in April 1977, only to shut three years later under the weight of unbridled hedonism and tax fraud. Operated by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, the club was perhaps the first to flaunt global tabloid clout, and coincided with the peak of 70s disco without necessarily being at the heart of it. Recalling the halcyon days of history's most famous dancefloor are jet-set PR socialite Carmen D'Alessio, deejay Nicky Siano, disco producer Nile Rodgers, fashionista Keni Valenti and roller-skating drag queen Rollerena, plus bartenders, dancers, busboys and terrifyingly selective doorman Mark Benecke.

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.
