Multi-Coloured Swap Shop


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.
For the last time this season Noel Edmonds opens up the Multi-Coloured Swap Shop and because it's the last one, it'll go on a bit longer!
Lines open at 9.30 am on [number removed]and stay open until 2.30 pm
' Why? ' you're thinking. ' That's in the middle of Grandstand.'
Read on - all will be explained.
Swaps of All Sorts This Week with All Sorts of People ! Like who? '
Keith Chegwin , for a start, and John Craven , and a Pop Swap from Showaddywaddy. You can hear their latest single this morning and a whole lot of other music.
' Any cartoons? '
9.45* Of course! There's the Great Grape Ape and Tarzan.
11.0* What about a Star Swap?' Certainly! (But we're not saying who)
I Anything else?'
Yes - a lot, but you'll have to wait and see.
'And what's all this about going on longer? '
It's to find out who's won the swaps and it could be you.
Phone in your answers any time up to 2.30 and Noel, John and Keith will be giving the results from a mystery location.
(They've got to go somewhere, because the Swap Shop studio shuts at 12.20)
! Where will they be? '
That's a secret! Find out during Grandstand round about 4.0 pm
So that's the last Swap Shop until September but look on page 27 for news of the Multi-Coloured Swap Shop grand award ceremony.

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.
