As part of Radio 2's season devoted to dance music, producer and veteran acid house DJ Chris Coco rewinds to 1988 for an exploration of the drug-fuelled dance phenomenon known as acid house, which injected a late-60s hippy-trippy ethos with a modern - and more overtly hedonistic - sensibility. Pausing for thought to recall the days of illegal raves and all-night repetitive beats are Peter Hook (of New Order), Hacienda DJ/writer Dave Haslam, DJ/historian Bill Brewster, Radio 1 presenters Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Judge Jules, Tom Findlay (of Groove Armada), X-Press 2, the Chemical Brothers, Klaxons, Does It Offend You, Yeah? and others.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
