Multi-Coloured Swap Shop


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.
A special Cup Final edition of Multi-Coloured Swap Shop presented by Noel Edmonds
You can talk to Nottingham Forest and England Goalkeeper Peter Shilton this morning - give him a ring on [number removed](lines open at
9.30) and find out his news and views of today's big matches. If you can't get through, drop us a postcard with your question and Noel will try to ask it for you.
Have you won Noel's Super Swap? Two lucky people will be going to the big match today at Wembley or Hampden Park as vip guests of Grandstand and Sportscene - will one of them be you? Switch on at
9.30 and find out. If you win and you're wondering how to get there, don't worry-we'll deal with all the problems and make sure you're there in time for the kick off!
Maggie Philbin and Keith Chegwin will be taking a look behind the scenes at Wembley this morning as Britain's most famous stadium gets ready to welcome 100,000 football fans.
Swaporama - Yes, Keith will be out swapping somewhere as well! But we're not giving any clues-find out if he's down your way at about 9.45. If he is, go and join him.
Enjoy a good laugh? Good, because Tom and Jerry and ' Cat Napping ' will be around today.
Can You Believe Your Eyes?
Does John Craven really look like Mr Spock ? Does Noel look like Captain Kirk? Have a good look this morning and see what you think. By the way, John will be here with his News Swap and today it's about football - but with a difference!
David Essex likes football, but he can't play it ' Twenty Flights Up' -so he'll be singing his latest single this morning - and there'll be a lot more music besides.
Got something to swap? Then send us a postcard saying what you'd like in return and if there's room, Noel will put it on his Top Ten Board. Remember the address? If you've forgotten here it is: Multi-coloured Swap Shop, BBC Television, London [Postcode removed].
And don't forget we'd like to hear from you about anything - all your letters are read and enjoyed.

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.
