: Review of the Year 1989

This year has been a year of momentous changes and mixed feelings.
The physical and political geography of Eastern Europe was redrawn, symbolised by the dismantling of the Berlin Wall. But the growing pains of democracy in China culminated in tragedy.
At home, inflation shot up, mortgage rates rose and house prices fell. Mrs Thatcher 's tenth anniversary was overshadowed by mid-term blues that turned into a crisis. Meanwhile the Labour Party staged its most successful party conference for 25 years.
It was a year of sadness; the Hillsborough disaster left 95 dead. But it was also a year of personal joy when the release of the Guildford Four gave the innocent a chance to rebuild their lives.
And sport produced its usual quota of conquering heroes. Liverpool in the FA Cup, Mike Tyson in the boxing ring and the brilliant Desert Orchid at Cheltenham.
Presenter: Jonathan Dimbleby. Deputy editor ALEX GERLIS Editor JAMES HOGAN

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.
