: The Definitive History of UK Dance Music

New series 1/3. Zoe Ball tackles the evolution of UK dance music, with late-80s acid house serving as the pivot around which other genres spin. The series explores dance scenes across the UK, encompassing northern soul, funk, rare groove, hip-hop, prog house, techno and drum 'n' bass, featuring dance-floor luminaries such as Sasha,
Russ Winstanley , Ian Levine , Fabio, Norman Jay , Jazzie B and Paul Oakenfold. The story starts with 1970s northern soul - with Wigan Casino its mecca - and swiftly proceeds to the 1980s with the emerging national soul scene, spearheaded by DJ/promoter/ club owner Nicky Holloway , who serves as consultant to the series.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
