: Eurovision Song Contest

Live from The Hague, Holland Commentary by Michael Aspel
The United Kingdom entry ' Save your kisses for me ' was written by LEE SHERIDEN , MARTIN LEE and TONY HILLER. and is conducted by ALYN AINSWORTH
The United Kingdom has won twice before: with SANDIE SHAW and Puppet on a String in 1967, and with LULU and Boom bang a bang in 1969. And we've been runners-up as many as nine times: in 1959 (Sing Little Birdie), 1960 (Looking High, High, High) and 1961 (Are You Sure?); again in 1964 (I Love the Little Things) and 1965 (1 Belong); then in 1968 CLIFF RICHARD came second with Congratulations!, in 1970 it was Knock, knock, Who's There? and in 1972 Beg, Steal or Borrow. In 1973 Cliff did it again with his Power to All our Friends, and in 1975 we almost made it with Let me Be the One. That's a long list of almost-successes - will 1976 be the year the U.K. wins again?

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.

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.
