Boy George 's tribute to the ultimate disco, Studio 54, which opened its doors to the dance-, drugs-, glamour- and sex-inclined of Manhattan's glitterati and to the city's fabulously presented hoi polloi in April 1977, only to shut three years later under the weight of unbridled hedonism and tax fraud. Recalling the halcyon days of history's most famous dance-f loor are jet-set PR socialite Carmen D'Alessio , deejay Nicky Siano , disco producer Nile Rodgers , fashionista Keni Valenti and roller-skating drag queen

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.
