: The Definitive History of UK Dance Music

2/3. Zoe Ball traces the evolution of UK dance music, with late-80s acid house serving as the pivot around which other genres spin. The story shifts to the golden era of 1988-93, and the rise of the Balearic beat and seminal clubs such as Shoom, Future, the Trip, Land of Oz and, most crucially, Manchester's
Hacienda. The programme looks at the media's hysterical take on the radical new dance scene as remote all-night and usually outdoor rave parties cast their spell on the nation's youth. Plus a look at regional differences and and the music's influence on acts such as Primal Scream, Bjbrk, the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays. See also Tuesday 11.30pm

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.
