The Best of Torvill and Dean

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.
Last month in Ottawa, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean won their fourth consecutive world title with a record number of maximum six marks. Was their free dance to Ravel's 'Bolero' perfection? What spells are cast by the magic of 'Mack and Mabel' or is the innovative circus routine from 'Barnum' the people's choice? Who can remember the music that accompanied their first success in 1981? From Hartford to Helsinki and Copenhagen to Canada, few sporting success stories have evoked such spontaneous viewer response, with daily requests for another chance to see their own particular favourite.
Tonight from Nottingham Alan Weeks introduces the memorable performances which changed the face of ice dancing.
Producer JIM RESIDE

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.
