I Love the Eighties


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.
Following the series that recalled the highlights and lowpoints of the seventies, this ten-part series moves on to the following decade as, each week, a different celebrity associated with the era recalls fads, fashions and films as well as the stars, sounds and sport. See Choice.
I Love 1980
Larry Hagman, who starred as pitiless oil baron JR Ewing in hit eighties American drama Dallas, remembers the year's highlights, from stage-school movie Fame, which follows at 10.30pm, to comedy with Diff'rent Strokes and Metal Mickey. Music is provided by the Human League, OMD, Liquid Gold, Kelly Marie and the Gap Band, all from a year in which girls donned jump suits and magazine The Face became the guide to style. (S) (W)

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.
