: Dazed and Confused - the Led Zeppelin Legacy

Another chance to hear a 2006 look at the lasting appeal and influence of heavy-metal band Led Zeppelin (vocalist Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page , bass and keyboard player Paul Jones , and drummer John Bonham). An albums-only act in the UK but with hit 45s in the States - Whole Lotta Love, Immigrant Song, Black Dog, Rock and Roll and Dyer Maker - the blues-drenched rock quartet enjoyed a run of non-stop number-one LPs from 1969 to 1979 and remain best known for the 1971 anthem Stairway to Heaven, though Kashmir (1975) has emerged as perhaps their definitive track.
Fanning the flames of the band's hot legacy are Franz Ferdinand, Ash, Tori Amos and mogul Alan McGee.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
