THE JOTA is a dance met with most frequently in the northern provinces of Spain, particularly in Aragon, where it is so popular that when the Aragonese are not dancing the jota they are probably singing it. The dance is a kind of free waltz, and originated in the twelfth century from a Rabelaisian Moor, Aben Jot , whose conduct was such that he found Aragon the only province in Spain he could live in without risk of being thrown out. Gratefully he invented the dance that bears his name, and handed it to the people of Aragon.
There are many types of jota, almost every district having its own. They all have this in common, however, the music is in three-four like a waltz, and is of the guitar, castanets, and tambourine order.

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.
