Eurovision Song Contest 1994


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.
Singers, composers and costume designers representing the cream of European talent assemble at the Point Theatre in Dublin tonight for the 39th annual contest of song. Can UK hopeful Frances Ruffelle break Ireland's run of luck? And what can we expect from the seven new countries making their Eurovision debut this year?
With a host of new member countries, the European Broadcasting Union has introduced a selection process to keep Eurovision manageable: with 46 countries vying for a place, the contest could theoretically last over six hours. Last year's lowest scoring countries have been "suspended" to make room for the new, so it's "au revoir" to (among others) Belgium, Denmark and Israel, and a big Eurovision "bonsoir" to Estonia, Romania, Lithuania and other east European neighbours.
Terry Wogan returns to the commentary box, and the contest is introduced by Cynthia Ni Mhurchu and Gerry Ryan. The full list of entries is:
Sweden Stjarnorna performed by Marie Bergman/Roger Pontare

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.
