: Torvill and Dean: Facing the Music

Just over a year ago, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean announced their return to competitive skating, nearly a decade after their triumph at the 1984 Sarajevo Winter
Olympics. In September, a BBC crew joined them as they began the intricate and exhausting task of re-creating the magic that made them famous: training, choreographing, arranging and recording music, deciding on costumes, and running the gauntlet of publicity.
The film is produced by Edward Mirzoeff who, among many other major documentaries, was responsible for Elizabeth R , shown to mark the 40th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne.
Radio microphones record the stresses and strains of rehearsal, while the camera crew film the behind-the-scenes emotions that an expectant public never sees. Through the National Championships in Sheffield, the European
Championships in Copenhagen and finally the Olympics at the Hamar stadium, Torvill and Dean can be seen enjoying the success and suffering the pitfalls of their return to the ice.

: The Oscars

The 66th Annual Academy Awards
"It's a splendidly enjoyable piece of commercial hype," says Barry Norman , who reports from this year's Academy
Awards ceremony held in Los Angeles yesterday.
As the stars arrive, Barry will be making his predictions about the winners. Among them is
Steven Spielberg 's Schindler's List, which he confidently expects to romp home with the gongs. Spielberg has been nominated for the best director award three times before, but has never won. This year Schindler's List is in 12 categories including best director and best picture.
British hopefuls are
Emma Thompson (In the Name of the Father), Anthony Hopkins
(Remains of the Day) and Ralph Fiennes (Schindler's List).
The programme will feature highlights of the ceremony, including all the main winners and their acceptance speeches, as well as clips from the winning movies. Barry Norman also pia ns to attend some of the post-ceremony celebrations to chat with the Oscar-winners. So he's keeping his fingers crossed that his predictions are accurate and he goes to the right parties.

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.
