Divided We Stand


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 MYRA TAYLOR starring Anna Keaveney and Shaun Curry featuring Maggie McCarthy Peter Childs
Vivienne Martin
Probably the only thing Bert and Maisie have in common is a love for their daughter Susan. The news that they are to become grandparents almost convinces Maisie that she ought to give Bert one more chance to mend his ways, but his behaviour at a jumble sale puts paid to that. Instead, she decides to do something that will really convince him that she has had enough.

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.
