In Sickness and in Health

Synopsis

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.
by JOHNNY SPEIGHT starring Warren Mitchell and Dandy Nichols
Alf and Else are invited to Christmas dinner at the church hall - thereby missing the free beano for pensioners at the local pub. Alf feels he ought to have his share of both, and achieves as much by conniving with his mate Arthur. Also using devious means, Rita is forced to stay to look after them over the Christmas period which ends with a knees-up at the church hall.
Designer GRAHAM LOUGH Produced and directed by ROGER RACE

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.
