Tonight and every night from Monday to Friday Cliff Michelmore introduces a new early evening programme for all the family.
Each edition will bring interviews with people in the news; views from people who never get into the news; sporting comment; reviews of the day's papers; musicians and music; something about travel; stories, puzzles, and up-to-the-minute flashes from the news room.
Among those appearing in "Tonight" this week will be:
Cy Grant, Jonathan Miller, Sir Mortimer Wheeler, Lady Baden-Powell, Lord Rowallan, Corodini Junior, Rory McEwen, John Metcalf, Sydney Jacobson, Jenny Nasmyth, Derek Hart and Geoffrey Johnson Smith.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
