Music: Eurovision - Making Your Mind Up 6.35pm BBC1
I'm worried. And I expect that other dyed-in-the-wool Eurovision fans may be, too, because the powers that be have decided to change the way we pick our Eurovision Song Contest entry so that we never again have to suffer the humiliation of last year's nul points.
Previously, all the contenders have come from the nation's budding songwriters via the British Academy of Songwriters and Composers, but in this live show, presented by Terry Wogan and Gaby Roslin, the Academy is contributing just one song, with various "top pop composing teams" penning the other five. There's also an expert panel providing an overview of what we should be looking for as we vote for the song we want to see performed in Turkey in May.
As they've taken their lead from Pop Idol, it'll doubtless be a more upbeat, enjoyable selection process, but I hope everyone realises it won't guarantee us a winning entry. Anyway, as all Eurovision aficionados know, winning isn't the most important part of this festival of kitsch. The UK's resounding failure last year (sorry, Jemini) made it one of the most glorious and exciting Eurovisions since the outrageous Dana International's victory in 1998. (Jane Rackham)

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.
