: The Real Eurovision

n anticipation of the Eurovision Song Contest on !1 May, Steve Lamacq assesses the state of popular music in France, Spain and Germany (the other three members of Eurovision's "Big Four"). Given our consistent ridiculing of continental pop, Lamacq searches for French, Spanish and German records that might actually appeal to a British sensibility, and explores the impact of radio quotas and the attempts at cultural preservation abroad.

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
