That's Life All Over!


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.
After 21 years of entertainment combined with campaigning consumer journalism, That's Life! comes to an end with this, its 418th edition.
Esther Rantzen is joined for this nostalgic celebration by all the presenters featured over the years, along with Wet Wet Wet, whose 1988 version of With a Little Help from My Friends raised more than £100,000 for Childline, and Victoria Wood , who reflects on her regular appearances back in 1976. Remember Prince, the dog who loved "sausages"? Or the time Esther was arrested handing out bat stew on a London street? And That's Life's Jobsworth award (to petty-minded officialdom) has ensured the word an established place in the English language. Some of the campaigns have led to changes in the law and there are many stories of courage and hope - including the organ-transplant fund that started with 2-year-old Ben Hardwick in 1984. Ten years on his mother Debbie is in the studio to talk about Ben's life.

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.
