: Jarvis Cocker's Musical Map of Sheffield

Unsentimentally droll Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker waxes lyrical on his native Sheffield in this personal diary which recalls growing up in a sad, once thriving city. Comparisons to Detroit partly drive Cocker's thesis, which contrasts Sheffield's hardship with its musical successes such as Joe Cocker, the Human League and Artery. Jarvis's band Pulp emerged in the post-punk era, which, he claims, put life back into the rather bleak and derelict city.

: The Greatest Dance Records of All Time

New series 1/3. As part of Radio 2's season devoted to dance music, Zoe Ball starts a countdown of the top ten greatest dance records ever, as voted for by Radio 2 listeners. The top-20 shortlist resulted from the combined dancefloor savvy of panellists including Ian Levine, Carl Cox, Danny Rampling, Chris Hill and Sasha.

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.
