Friday 4th April 1997.

The Radio Times is struggling to work out where to put the Channel 5 daytime listings.

Channel 4 is going through Frasier from the beginning.

Columbo! BBC1, 2.15pm.

Sunday 5th April 1992.

Both FA Cup semi-finals are live on BBC1, from Highbury and Hillsborough.

The Piglet Files on ITV Central at 7.15pm, a spy comedy starring Nicholas Lyndhurst. I've never ever seen that.

Friday 10th April 1995.

's Out, the final episode of Bottom, aired on BBC2. 29 years ago today.

It was originally intended to air in November 1992, as the final episode of Series 2, but that was cancelled following a murder on Wimbledon Common where the episode is set: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_Rachel_Nickell

Friday 10th April 1992.

Coverage of the 1992 General Election has been going on all night and is still going on this morning.

An interesting patch of Thunderbirds and Doctor Who on BBC2 from 6pm.

9pm on ITV Central, that is the first episode of Heartbeat. It will run for 372 episodes, ending in 2010.
