The Ronnie Corbett Show


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.
Ronnie Corbett with his special guests Rory Bremner Keith Barron
Richard Stilgoe and Peter Skellern
The English football team beating Brazil 10-0,
Joan Collins entering a convent, a telephone box that works, and an SDP policy on anything. These are just some of the items you won't find on this week's show. However, you will find sketches, monologues, established stars and emerging stars in 30 minutes of comedy and variety that would be worth at least an hour anywhere else.

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.
