A look at the first decade of BBC Radio 1 through the music, voices and listeners.

It's back to 1977 - as Alan 'Fluff' Freeman marks the tenth anniversary of the BBC's music-loving national radio station, which began broadcasting on 247 metres on the Medium Wave.

Launched on Saturday 30th September 1967 at 7am, Radio 1 was the BBC's attempt to replace the defunct pirate stations, though many shows were simulcast with BBC Radio 2 in the early days.

"The swinging new radio service" - according to the Radio Times - took much of its style from the pirate radio stations it replaced and employed several ex-pirate disc jockeys.

Year by year - from 1967 to 1977 - Fluff looks back at the original DJ line-up and recounts all the comings and goings. Featuring Tony Blackburn, Kenny Everett, Ed Stewart, Keith Skues, Jimmy Young, Terry Wogan, Noel Edmonds, Tommy Vance, Rosko, Johnnie Walker, David Hamilton and many more...

Music, wonderful Radio 1 jingles and extracts from programmes of the first decade are interlaced with comments from music industry experts and listeners to Radio 1 at that time.
