: Election 97

David Dimbleby hosts the election results coverage-the BBC's biggest ever single news programme. Election 97 brings together top presenters, state-of-the-art graphics and a dramatic studio set. While Jeremy Paxman puts politicians through their paces, Peter Snow analyses proceedings with the help of a "virtual reality" swingometer. A giant video wall will bring news and reactions from the 80 outside broadcasts. From Banff and Buchan in the north of Scotland to
Falmouth and Camborne in the south west of England, the programme will broadcast the results live from the target seats where the outcome of the election will be decided. The first result is expected at around 11.30pm.
A representative is stationed at each of the 659 counts and cameras will be with the party leaders and at their campaign headquarters. Political experts including Professor Anthony King, Peter Kellner and John Curtice will examine the information to ensure an accurate picture as the story unfolds. The reporters include Peter Jay, Michael Buerk, Kate Adie , Anna Ford , Martin Bashir and Jill Dando. Coverage continues at 9am. See today's choices.

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.
