Noel Edmonds opens up the Multi-Coloured Swap Shop for a special occasion
It's Swap of the Cups
Lines open on [number removed]
Join Noel in London, Keith Chegwin at Hampden Park, John Craven in Highbury, Delia Smith in Ipswich and look in at Wembley for swaps and tips about today's Cup Finals in England and Scotland.
Music! Cartoons!
Secret Squirrel, Huckleberry Hound

Today's other great match: Radio 1 v BBC Scotland
The result is no surprise because this epic game took place during the Radio 1 week in Glasgow a few weeks back but so far no one knows what went on in the dressing room! Find out and maybe win the football that was kicked around by all the DJs!

Noel's putting it up for a swap.
You Can't Do that Ear Here!
Find out how the amazing Match of the Day titles were made and give Jimmy Hill a ring. He'll be calling in about 11.00 on his way to Wembley.
Swap Football Programmes with the Collector of the Week.
Noel and Keith in a Super Swap.
Someone from England and someone from Scotland will get the chance of a life-time with an invitation to go to the Wembley or Hampden Park Final as guests of Grandstand and Sportscene. Switch on at 9.30 for all the details and if you're the lucky one you could be spending the afternoon at a great match.

Great moments from historic Wembley Cup Finals since they started! Have you got a favourite year? Do you know what happened in 1931 or 1967? Think of a year, give Noel a ring and he'll re-run a golden moment for you.

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.
