: The Eurovision Song Contest

Live from the Globe Arena in Stockholm, Terry Wogan commentates on coverage of the 45th Eurovision Song Contest, the first of the new millennium. With Sweden hosting the event for the fourth time, Kattis Ahlstrom and Anders Lundin are the comperes for the evening, unveiling songs by acts from 24 countries - including 1999 non-starters the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Russia, Finland, Latvia, Romania and Switzerland.

The United Kingdom entry Don't Play That Song Again, sung by Nicki French, is third in the line-up. A full list of entrants, their songs, and the telephone numbers viewers can call to vote is on page 29.

Shows: The Eurovision Song Contest 8.00pm BBC1
Don't Play That Song Again: not only is that what some viewers will be shouting at the less enjoyable compositions in this year's contest, but it's also the title of the UK's entry. This year's three-hour extravaganza of the glorious and the ghastly comes from Sweden, homeland of the most famous Eurovision group of all time, Abba. Once again it is enlivened by Terry Wogan's irreverent commentary, which some have criticised for being too flippant but without which Eurovision would be a lot less fun - and fun is undoubtedly the point of it. Most viewers don't even mind too much who wins, and when the voting and the flag-waving and the tears are all over, they can't remember the words to a single song - they're far more likely to remember the costumes.

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.
