: Election 74

Here is the Result ...
Alastair Burnet heads into night-long action again the team who were first with the right prediction (and fastest with the results) of the February election.
David Butler explaining the detail behind each result.
Graham Pyatt interrogating the computer as it instantly relates each vote to the national trend
Robert McKenzie keeping the score
and Robin Day interviewing the winners - and the losers.
Together, they present from the Election 74 studio the most comprehensive coverage to this most unpredictable election... the fullest results service... analysis... prediction... and explanation of what it's going to mean to Britain - and to you.
Who will be the next Prime Minister? Within minutes of the polls closing, BBCtv's national how-did-you-vote survey will be the earliest guide to the decisive question, Labour or Conservative for the next five years - or what?
Who will be your MP? The first declaration is expected from Newcastle Central, Guildford, Cheltenham or Salford. Whichever it is, Election 74 cameras will be there - and at the rest of the most important declarations through the night... inside the party head-quarters in London... and with the crowds watching the result on the BBC's giant TV screen in Trafalgar Square.
Nobody will be watching the developments more than the party leaders:
The Prime Minister
Rt Hon Harold Wilson in his constituency, Huyton with Michael Charlton
Rt Hon Edward Heath in Sidcup with David Dimbleby
Rt Hon Jeremy Thorpe in Devon North with David Lomax

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
