Later with Jools HollandLater with Jools Holland
is a BBC rock music
show running from 1992, hosted by Jools Holland
. The title derives from the programme's late-night slot, usually around 11 PM. The show features around five bands with a variety of styles performing for each other and a small studio audience. Jools Holland introduces the show, adds a little piano from time to time and interviews one or more of the performers. Special editions broadcast on New Year's Eve
are referred to as Jools Holland's Hootenanny. Repeated excerpts from the show have been broadcast under the title A Little later
Later DVDs include 10 Years of Later...30 great live performances (2002), Later...Louder (2003), and Bjork - Later with Jools Holland.
Because of Holland's relaxed and confident presentation and the diversity of musical styles the series is seen by many as a fitting successor to The Old Grey Whistle Test.
