TV Show

Later... with Jools Holland is a contemporary British music television show hosted by Jools Holland. A spin-off of The Late Show, it has been running without a break since 1992 and is a part of BBC2's late-night line-up, usually around 11PM. It is usually recorded on a Tuesday for Friday broadcast and features a mixture of both established and new musical artists, from solo performers to bands and larger ensembles.

The show is currently broadcast in America on Ovation; previously it has been shown on BBC America, Fuse, and Rave HD. The Ovation and Fuse broadcasts leave out several performances (and usually one or two performers entirely) in order to air commercials within a one-hour timeslot. It is also shown in Australia on the Max channel and ABC2.

The 200th programme was broadcast on 1 February 2008.

Programme formatEdit

Later... draws from a diverse palette of both popular and world music, and each show features around five bands with a variety of styles performing for each other and a small studio audience. Jools Holland introduces the show and interviews one or more of the performers. A unique feature is the short jam session that begins each show, involving all of his invited guests, along with Holland on piano. This beginning jam session also best shows the unusual layout of the set – all the bands are arrayed in a circle with the audience filling in the gaps between them. Holland often also accompanies his guests' performances. On 1 April 2008, a new format was debuted featuring a thirty-minute, fully-live show broadcast on a Tuesday followed by the original hour-long pre-recorded show broadcast on a Friday. The Friday show will feature the performances recorded on a Tuesday as well as other performances recorded during the session for the live show.

Special editionsEdit

Occasional special editions of the show showcase a major artist under the Later... banner, titled "Later presents...". Artists featured in these shows have included Metallica in 1996, R.E.M. in 1998, Oasis in 2000 and Radiohead in 2001. The band in question play for the duration of the hour-long show. Despite the different name, the show is still introduced by Jools Holland and takes place in a similarly set-up studio.

Special editions broadcast on New Year's Eve each year are referred to as Jools Holland's Hootenanny and are pre-recorded. In 2003 a 'Spring Hootenanny' was broadcast, which proved to be a one-off.

Repeated excerpts from the show have been broadcast under the title A Little Later particularly as fill in programs on BBC HD.
