: Suzi Quatro's Heroes ofRock 'n' Roll

New series 1/6. Radio 2's resident rocker Suzi Ouatro showcases six established greats of rock 'n' roll and pop. The series features interviews with the stars, starting with the phenomenally successful Chubby Checker. Born Ernest Evans , he first cracked the American top 40 in 1959, when he was still in high school. His second hit, The Twist, reached number one in both 1960 and 1962 and sparked a dance craze, out of which Checker enjoyed further success with huge hits such as Pony Time, Let's Twist Again (his biggest UK hit) and Limbo Rock. Checker describes the twist as "putting out a cigarette with both feet while coming out of the shower and wiping your bottom off with a towel ... to the beat".

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.
