How Do They Do That?

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.
It seems that the public really wanted to know How Do They Do That?
Not only has the programme been watched by between 10 and 11 million people each week but thousands of viewers wrote in with suggestions for future items. Producer John Longley
says: "We have received enough ideas from the public to make several series - although we've also got a few ideasofourown."
Tonight presenters
Desmond Lynam and Jenny Hull reveal the tricks of the trade for the last time in this series. However, there are plans - as well as enough ideas - for a new series to be broadcast next year. ProducerGill Stribling-Wright Executive producer Alan Boyd

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.
