Campaign Confessions

Continuing the nightly series of political confessions.
Comedy writer John O'Farrell , author of bestseller Things Can Only Get Better, grew up supporting Labour while living in the true-blue constituency of Maidenhead. With Tony Blair safely ensconced in Number 10, O'Farrell returns to the Berkshire town as the Labour parliamentary candidate and attempts to convince some of Britain's most well-off electorate to vote for increases in state benefits and the minimum wage.

Campaign Confessions

The weekday series of political revelations continues with a personal portrait of the last general election, recorded by three candidates, revealing their determination to win, their dread of losing, and the surprise encounters with "real" people - a world away from the spin and stage management of the national campaign. Former Tory MP
Lady Olga Maitland hopes to be the ultimate "comeback kid" by winning back the Sutton and Cheam seat she lost in 1997. In a Forest of Dean hard hit by the foot-and-mouth crisis, Labour's Diana Organ must fight to rally apathetic voters and retain her seat there. Finally, hair and beauty entrepreneur Damian Hockney stands against Michael Portillo on behalf of the UK Independence Party in the true-blue constituency of Kensington and Chelsea.

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.
