Professor Wurzel's WURZELMANIA!

Adge Cutler & The Wurzels - 'Live' At The Beeb

1967 - 1974



Adge Cutler and his Wurzels appeared on the BBC - on both television and radio - some 36 times from 1967 until 1974. Thanks to the 'BBC Genome Project' (a database of programme listings based upon the contents of the Radio Times from the first issue in 1923 to 2009) it has been possible to list all such appearances by the band.

Image on the right taken from the BBC2 show 'Up Sunday' broadcast in November 1973.
