: British Steel: How British Heavy Metal Conquered the World

2/2. Justin Lee Collins tells the story of British heavy metal. He continues with 1977, by which time much of the music had become overblown and pompous. Punk spiked the genre with attitude and a DIY spirit, kick-starting the chart careers of Iron Maiden, Motorhead and Def Leppard, with smaller bands such as Saxon, Diamond Head, Venom, Angel Witch and Girlschool getting into gear up and down the country. Metal surged in the 1980s, when the Americans dominated the field. Featuring rare sessions and archive material, plus new interviews with members of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Budgie, Saxon, Diamond Head and other bands.


Presenter: Justin Lee Collins

: Bob Harris

Genesis musician Tony Banks talks about the band's new boxed set of live performances since 1973. And US-born London bluesman Stephen Dale Petit performs an acoustic set.

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.
