How They Voted Today: Part 1


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.
Network Special with BBC Local Radio

Today's trial of strength between the Parties in the Borough Elections in England and Wales (except London) will have an impact on political attitudes far beyond the localities concerned. Overall Party gains and losses may well reveal significant evidence of the current state of public opinion. To add to the interest, in Greater London itself there have been Parliamentary by-elections today in Kingston-upon-Thames and Southwark.

In this late-night co-production between network News and Current Affairs in London and all 20 BBC Local Radio stations -which will provide Radio 4 with a special service in addition to their own local output -you can hear flashes from important boroughs up and down the country and from the two by-elections.
The BBC's Political Editor Hardiman Scott presents the programme. With him in London is ANTHONY KING, Professor of Government in the University of Essex, and they will have the support of special correspondents in BBC Local Radio Stations in the running analysis of results as they come in.

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.
