: BBC Children in Need

Terry Wogan, Gaby Roslin and Pudsey Bear introduce the 24th annual fundraising event in which a host of famous faces help underprivileged children in the UK. Throughout the night there'll be regular reports from around the country, appeal films and news of how the money will be spent.

To kick off proceedings, the winner and all-round top dog of Celebrity Dog School is announced. And would you like to see Busted in concert and join them for a post-gig pizza? This is just one of the fantastic "money-can't-buy" experiences that callers to the pledge line could win.

7.30 EastEnders, Holby City, Casualty and Merseybeat unite for a three-part comedy based on The Wizard of Oz
(more at 8.40). Plus music from Phil Collins and Will Young.

8.00 David Dickinson's celebrity bargain hunters place bids for charity, and the Dead Ringers present a Doctor Who special. Plus music from Gareth Gates and Rachel Stevens.

8.30 Houseproud cleaning ladies Kim and Aggie from How Clean Is Your House? present a video nasty. Plus part two of tonight's comedy (concludes at 9.25), Big Brovaz in concert, and musical surprises with Donny Osmond.

9.00 Grease is the word as Coronation Street celebrates 25 years of the musical. Plus the live finale of tonight's comedy, and music from Peter Gabriel and Enrique Iglesias.

9.30 Shane Richie performs the official Children in Need single.
Continues at 10.35pm.

Today's Choices: Charity
Children in Need 7.00pm BBC1
It's that time of year again when all around the country, people start doing some very strange things in order to raise money for charity. We'll see plenty of them tonight, in between exhortations from Terry Wogan and Gaby Roslin to pledge money ourselves. How can you refuse to dig deep in your pockets for such a worthy cause?
Of course, there's also cracking entertainment all evening. There's masses of music from the likes of Shane Richie, Meat Loaf, Donny Osmond and Rachel Stevens, as well as a song-and-dance spectacular from the stars of Coronation Street and a surreal edition of Weakest Link, in which Doctor Who, the Cybermen and the Daleks are brought back to life by the Dead Ringers team.
However, the sequence I'm looking forward to is the one in which Kim and Aggie from How Clean Is Your House? perform a specially rewritten version of Scandalous with the original artists Mis-Teeq providing backing vocals. It should clean up.

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.
