To mark the beginning of the 40th series, the programme packs its suitcase full of topical gags and travels to the legendary City Varieties Theatre in Leeds for this week's show.
As always, music is from Peter Moss and the Huddliners. The announcer is Richard Clegg. Producer Phil Bowker
The UK's biggest country music prize event was held last week at the BBC's
Pebble Mill Studios in Birmingham. Voting took place in February, and the results were disclosed during a glittering evening honouring top artists from Britain and America. Those present were treated to music performed live by American singing star Martina McBride , the guitarist and singer Sarah Jory , together with one of Nashville's brightest new stars Ty England and the top group of 1995 West
Virginia. David Allan hosts the event, aided by Martina McBride. Neil Coppendale provides extra information on the winners. Share in the excitement as the results are announced in this star-studded specially edited recording.

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.
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.
