A Question of Sport


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.
Britain's most enduring television quiz show begins a new series tonight.
The programme, which celebrates its 25th year in 1995, notched up more than 250 million viewers for its last series, but the audience profile is somewhat surprising. Says executive producer Mike Adley : " More than half the programme's viewers are women, many of whom can't stand sport!"
Back in theirfamiliar roles as team captains are Ian Botham (currently nearingthe end of his latest walk for Leukaemia Research) and Bill Beaumont , formerskipper of England's rugbyteam, with David Coleman as questionmaster. Their guests tonight are 100-metres world champion
Linford Christie , Blackburn Rover's striker Chris Sutton , Surrey cricket captain
Alec Stewart and top British female swimmer Karen Pickering.

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.
