The Riots that Triggered the Gay Revolution
Marking the 40th anniversary of perhaps the most significant event in modern gay history, singer/ songwriter Tom Robinson ((Sing If You're) Glad to Be Gay (1978) and Having It Both Ways (1996)) tells the story of the 28 June 1969 police raid on New York City's uninhibited homosexual drink-and-dance bar the Stonewall Inn and the week of protest rioting that followed. The bar was located in Greenwich Village's Christopher Street, which then became the symbol of gay New York. A true watershed, the event triggered the public gay rights movement as we know it, and signalled an end to homosexuality's taboo as a mental illness.
Contributors include Seymour Pine (the policeman who led the raid) and journalist Howard Smith , who was inside the bar at the time. Plus input from Stonewall rioters and previously unaired archive interviews with activists Craig Rodwell (1940-93) and Barbara Gittings (1932-2007). Producer Joby Waldman

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.
