Multi-Coloured Swap Shop


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
He's back!
Noel Edmonds opens a new season of swapping, with the Stars, the Experts, the Collector and You.
Join in by phone or by postcard and you might make the swap of a lifetime.
Calling All Callers
Swap Shop lines open at 9.30 and there's a new phone number. It's [number removed] and there's a monster reminder from Posh Paws on page 78 on how to get through to us.
The Great Grape Ape's Around with Flying Saucery
Do You Want to be a Reporter?
Then join in News Swap with John Craven
Give him a ring on the story of the day, or write to him with your news. John's going to try and follow up the best stories. Yours could be one of them.
Keith Chegwin's with his Swaporama
Bring your toys, records, books, games or anything else you want to swap to ... ? Keith's not saying where until this morning. It is a sports ground somewhere in Britain, but you won't score if you guess where! That's supposed to be a clue and it should narrow down the spot to find Keith to one of about 50,000 places!
Talking of sport, have a Grandstand View of Frank Bough
He'll be calling in to swap and chat this morning.
Ring him or write now if there's something you specially want to know about the television sports scene.
Nac Uoy Klat Ekil Siht?
Janice Cairns and Sandra Deacon can! What's more, they'll be calling in to BBC Glasgow to prove it to Anne Lome Gillies and to you. They learned how to do it from Swap Shop, and if you'd like to try you can pick up a tip or two from Bill Homewood of the National Theatre, Britain's leading expert. Calling in from Glasgow too, at about 11.30, will be Oel Reyas-so don't miss him and his latest hit.
10.45* Noel likes a cup of coffee and a cartoon about now. How about you? Brew up in good time and settle down to
Dastardly and Muttley in Camouflage Hoperoo
(Hope you can spot them!)
Bags and Bags of Swapping with Angela Hamblin
You'll recognise her when you see her from her photo on page 80, and if you are thinking of starting a colourful, inexpensive collection, why not start by swapping with Angela?
Swap of the Pops
Heatwave hits Swap Shop with an exclusive preview track from their new album.
Star Swap
No Further!
He's here!
Harry Secombe will be bringing a swap along this morning at about 11.45. You can ring him on [number removed]. Do You Want to be on Swap Shop? Have you got an unusual collection, a news story for John, an unusual skill or talent? Then perhaps you will be. Write to Noel and tell him all about it, and if your idea's good enough, the BBC might open up your local studio specially for you! You might be picked to call in to Swap Shop some Saturday morning, just like Sandra and Janice. So go on-have a try!
Noel's Top Ten Swap
If you've wanted to swap and you've never got the address right-you won't find it here! . It's on page 78 in Posh Paws's monster guide.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
