Highlights from Guilfest, featuring the Proclaimers, the Pogues, Tom Baxter, and Echo and the Bunnymen. Paul Weller rounds off the show, live from the main stage. Presented by Janice Long.

Guilfest 2.00pm/9.30pm R2
You're putting together a line-up for a music festival so, naturally, once you've secured the Pogues in the headline slot on Friday (see Phill Jupitus on p34), you know you just have to book... Lulu, Status Quo and Daniel Bedingfield as well. Purely because this has to rank as the most eclectic (or, some might say, bizarrely camp) mix of artists performing together this summer, I ask you to tune in today, when the top-of the-bill act is Paul Weller.

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.
