: A Song for Europe

The song which will represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in Paris will be chosen this evening from the 12 finalists, who will perform live before an invited audience in the Royal Albert Hall, London. Juries from 14 regions will vote for the winning song.
Song No 1: Shine It On performed by Christian
Song No 2: Oh No, Look What You've Done performed by Brown Sugar
Song No 3: Door In My Face performed by The Fruit Eating Bears
Song No 4: Moments performed by Jacquie Sullivan
Song No 5: Too Much In Love performed by Sunshine
Song No 6: Lonely Nights performed by Ronnie France
Song No 7: One Glance performed by The Jarvis Brothers
Song No 8: The Bad Old Days performed by Co-Co
Song No 9: We Got It Bad performed by Bob James
Song No 10: Don't Bother To Knock performed by Midnight
Song No 11: Don't Let Me Stand In Your Way performed by Babe Rainbow
Song No 12: Solid Love performed by Labi Siffre
Introduced by Terry Wogan who says "I compered A Song for Europe last year - though it wasn't shown then on TV - and I was very impressed by the standard of the songs and performances. In fact, I thought it was far higher than the general standard in the Eurovision Song Contest itself. This year I shall be introducing both shows again, and I feel our chances should be good. The British entries for the Eurovision contest have always been of high quality, and our overall record is very good - we've usually been in the first three."

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.
