: Eurovision Song Contest

Performers from 25 countries take to the stage of the Olympiyski Indoor Arena in Moscow knowing that their nations are relying on them to not only warble their way to the top prize, but avoid any unfortunate wardrobe malfunction in the process. For many viewers, the annual songfest will not be the same without the gently mocking tones of Terry Wogan , but the inimitable style of new host Graham Norton should perfectly match the flamboyant extravaganza where eye-catching presentation, over-the-top costumes and bizarre dance routines can be as memorable as the tunes.
When Britain's Andy Abraham finished last in 2008, Andrew Lloyd Webber pledged to restore national pride by penning a winning song for the first time since Katrina and the Waves triumphed in 1997. Can Jade Ewen and It's My Time, which Lloyd Webber crafted with acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren , achieve a melodious victory for Blighty?
Voting is by telephone only. Numbers will be given during the programme, with lines opening after performances. Also broadcast on Radio 2. Simulcast in HD on the BBC HD channel EUROVISION FEATURES: radiotimes.com/eurovision

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.
