: Election 92

David Dimbleby hosts the BBC's results coverage.
He is joined in the studio by Peter Snow who introduces a giant, hi-tech version of the famous swingometer to help make sense of the flow of results. And Peter Sissons explores the implications with a continuously changing panel of key politicians.
John Cole - assessing his 12th General Election - is joined by Professor Anthony King and Peter Kellner. And Dr John Curtice offers a computer analysis of the changes.
John Simpson is shadowing John Major, Jeremy Paxman is with Neil Kinnock and Michael Buerk with Paddy Ashdown. Martyn Lewis reports from Downing Street.
Cameras will also be present at the vital declarations around the country. The first result is expected at around 11pm.
This is David Dimbleby 's fourth time as election-night presenter. It is a nerve-racking experience, yet he aims to make it fun: "Millions of viewers will be following the drama, waiting to see their heroes and villains rise or fall.
And if we in the studio make an occasional slip, they'll probably enjoy it just that much more." Editor Peter Horrocks

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.
