BBC Records

BBC Records

Profile:
The British Broadcasting Corporation first introduced its own record label in 1967. It has gone by various names through the years. Please be sure to use the correct label:

1967-70 BBC Radio Enterprises
1970-74 BBC Records
1974-89 BBC Records And Tapes
1990s- BBC Worldwide.

With a remit to release singles and albums connected to TV and radio programmes (plus a few royal souvenirs and other oddities), its output has been extremely varied and takes in a large amount of spoken-word material as well as music in a wide range of styles. Of most interest to electronics fans are the numerous releases from the Corporation's own BBC Radiophonic Workshop and some of the more experimental theme music singles which appeared during the 70s and 80s.
