Have I Got News for You


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.
1/8 Satirical swords are sharpened once again for the 28th series of the evergreen news quiz. Regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton are joined by a guest presenter and panellists.
Repeated tomorrow on BBC2

Have I Got News for You 9.30pm BBC1
As Friday nights seem suddenly to have become chock-full of undemanding light-entertainment programmes (and I'm not entirely sure why and how that's happened), here's a bit of brain food if you feel in need of intellectual exercise, and of course, a bit of a laugh. The ever-dependable Ian Hislop and Paul Merton return to captain the two teams, though as we went to press no guests had been confirmed. And as for the other question on the lips of every HIGNFY fan - who's the guest presenter? - we can't answer that either, as no one has yet been recruited. (AG)

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.
