by ANTONY JAY and JONATHAN LYNN. Starring
Paul Eddington
Nigel Hawthorne Derek Fowlds in The Key
There is a territorial battle in the heart of Number 10. Sir Humphrey has skilfully moved Dorothy Wainwright , the PM's political adviser, out of her office. She insists on moving back - and points out to Jim that he is letting Humphrey become too dominant.
Its closely observed portrayal of what goes on in the corridors of power has given me hours of pure joy

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.
