: Have I Got News for You

The topical news quiz returns for a new eight-part series. Joining host Angus Deayton are regular team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton. See Choice.
Repeated next Sunday on BBC2 (S) (W)

Comedy: Have I Got News For You 9.00pm BBC1
After 19 series of poking fun at the good, the bad and anyone else who has appeared in the media, the satire show has finally been moved to BBC1. The change of channel seems unlikely to have any impact because if there is one show that has settled on the perfect form and personnel, this is it. Angus Deayton is due to roll out the familiar challenges to regulars Paul Merton and Ian Hislop. It is the guests - not known at the time of writing - who potentially bring an extra edge. Let's hope for some women to crush the boors and over-confident politicians who think they can compete for laughs with the regulars. But what a standard the programme-makers have to maintain - will anyone ever match the tub of lard? GE

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
