Strictly Come Dancing


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. Top to toe in slinky sequined dresses and tail suits, eight celebrities are paired with professionals in a live ballroom dancing competition.
Hosted by Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly, rugby legend Martin Offiah, opera diva Lesley Garrett, EastEnders' Christopher Parker, news presenter Natasha Kaplinsky, actress Claire Sweeney, comedian Jason Wood, Holby City's Verona Joseph and presenter David Dickinson will be strutting their stuff in a bid to win votes from the public and the studio judges, led by ballroom legend Lorna Lee.
Although no pair will be voted off tonight, from next week onwards the duo with the lowest score will depart the show until two teams remain in the final week. Viewers will be able to vote using the phone numbers announced on the night.
Further coverage at 7.15pm on BBC3 [web address removed]

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.
