The Andrew Duncan Interview with Terry Wogan : page 16
As the Eurovision Song Contest Is live, subsequent programmes may run late

Eurovision Song Contest
8.00pm BBC 1 It may seem incredible, but Great Britain hasn't won the Eurovision Song Contest for 15 inglorious years. Are we just fatally out of step with European pop tastes? It seems that way from tonight's line-up: most of the entries are slow ballads, while our choice (Gina G singing OohAah...Just a Little Bit) is an up-tempo dance number.
The drama will unfold as artists from the 23 participating countries set out their wares on the stage of Oslo's Spektrum Centre (Norway won last year with Secret Garden's Nocturne, which broke Ireland's three-year stranglehold but sounded Irish anyway). Many Eurovision regulars didn't even make it through the pre-selection judging, so there are no entries from Germany, Denmark or Israel. Morten Harket (lead singer of eighties teen band A-Ha) introduces the performers on a spectacular stage designed to resemble an oil rig, and foreign correspondent Ingvild Bryn collects the votes in a virtual reality studio.
Terry Wogan provides his usual amused commentary, and shares his Eurovision memories with Andrew Duncan on page 16.

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.

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.
