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.
A special television programme based on the poems of JEREMY LLOYD
Set to music by JIM PARKER with illustrations by KEITH MICHELL starring Penelope Keith
Keith Michell , Harry Secombe Gordon Jackson , Jeremy Lloyd and Noel Edmonds who says:
' There's a second tidal wave of Captain Beakyism about to engulf us all. Can you imagine - Hissing Sid cakes! It's extraordinary the way that it's caught on; the characters are a headline writer's dream. The key thing is that Jeremy Lloyd wrote a lovely series of poems-and isn't it great that they are being so widely heard! '

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.
