: Last Choir Standing

New series 1/9. The latest Saturday night talent show sees Nick Knowles and Myleene Klass hunt for a singing group to be crowned the best in Britain. Expert judges Russell Watson, Sharon D Clarke and Suzi Digby help do the weeding out.
The Inside Story: page 54

The Inside Story
What makes singing different from other group activities? "It doesn't rely on people succeeding at someone else's expense. In choir singing, everyone needs to do well for the group to succeed," says Suzi Digby, one of the judges in Last Choir Standing (7.45pm BBC1). What sort of judge will she be? "I'm very exacting and critical, but it's important that people don't go away humiliated," says Digby, who set up the Voices Foundation to promote singing in primary schools. "Singing in a choir is one way that ordinary people can get an extraordinary experience," she says.

Entertainment: Last Choir Standing 7.45pm BBC1
Here's a new spin on the Saturday-night talent show. Instead of making bright-eyed young singers jump through hoops, why not get whole choirs to compete? On the evidence of a brief taster tape, the results look loud and lively.
It comes from the team behind Strictly Come Dancing and I'd Do Anything, and the idea is to find the nation's favourite choir. (We're not just talking Handel here: gospel, barbershop, pop, folk, rock - any genre allowed.) Presenters Myleene Klass and Nick Knowles jolly things along while a panel of judges - Russell Watson, Sharon D Clarke (Lola Griffin in Holby City) and choral conductor Suzi Digby (see the Inside Story, above) - make the tough decisions. This week we start the auditions, where the judges have to narrow down 60 choirs to the 15 who go through to the studio heats. Six choirs will then progress to the live shows where the judges and public vote each week for who to save.
It should be a knockout in every sense and a fit celebration of Britain's incredibly lively choral scene. Judging from that taster tape, there's a great deal of flirting, too. (David Butcher)

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.
