Synopsis

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.
1981 - The Year the Rules Changed?
A Newsnight review of the political year introduced by John Tusa. For the Conservatives 1981 was the year the cracks over economic policy began to show. For Labour, by their own account it was a wasted year, much of it spent in internal argument. For the Liberals it was the year of the alliance with the new Social Democratic Party which dominated the opinion polls. How do the parties look back on 1981, and how will they face the challenge of 1982? Production team:

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.
