Do the Right Thing


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.
Terry Wogan hosts the British version of a simple Brazilian game-show which has become a powerful barometer of popular opinion in its home land. The viewing audience and a celebrity panel are asked to ponder the "right thing" in a series of sticky situations.

Voce Decide ("You Decide") posed awkward questions like "would you fabricate an alibi for your best friend?", "would you sell your story to the press if you had an affair with a politician?" and "should you tell your sister if her husband is having an affair?", asking viewers to decide the outcome in a telephone vote. Before long, politicians and journalists were beginning to pay serious attention to each episode.

Will Do the Right Thing become compulsory viewing for British cabinet ministers searching for moral guidance? You can help Terry Wogan and his three celebrity panellists to tell right from wrong.
To vote yes, telephone

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.
