Live and Kicking


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Zoe Ball and Jamie Theakston return with a new series of live entertainment. This week's guests include singer Louise.
Newcomers Gez Foster, Ben Ward and Richard Webb alias "the men in trousers" - join the show for a weekly dose of zany comedy sketches; new pop releases in Hit Miss or Maybe; and Mr Blobby is back with plenty of fun and games in Mr Blobby's Office Trolley.
Plus the latest news from the world of entertainment with Dannii Minogue and Toby Anstis, cartoon fun with Rugrats and Spiderman, and the first in a new US comedy series Kenan and Kel, aboutthe madcap adventures of two teenage boys.

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.
