Nineties Night


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.
BBC2 devotes the last night of the year to a special tribute honouring the decade that came to be labelled as the "caring, sharing nineties". Ends 11.50pm. See Choice.
TOTP2 Presents the Nineties
Steve Wright presents a special edition of TOTP2 that looks back on ten years of outstanding singles with the songs and stars that made nineties pop music what is was. Those who defined the decade include Michael Jackson, Jarvis Cocker,
Shania Twain, Oasis, the Spice Girls, Take That, Madonna, the Fugees, Blur, Fatboy Slim and Manic Street Preachers.
9.45 Gimme Gimme Gimme: Millennium
Flatmates Tom and Linda spend New Year's Eve drinking together.
Shown on Wednesday 29 at 9pm (S) (W)
10.20 Goodbye to the Nineties
An affectionate look at the highs and lows of the past ten years in a fast-moving montage of memorable moments with music and scrolling newsbites. This was the decade when OJ, Viagra and Ibiza became household names, former Take That star Robbie Williams rose and fell and rose again, and football "came home" to the middle classes.

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.
