Sofa so good? Things are never quite ship-shape for television's favourite family, The Simpsons.
The Simpsons
6.00pm BBC2 A man's best friend is his dog, so long as that dog isn't Santa's Little Helper and the man isn't Homer Simpson. The ugly, dumb one (the dog, of course) rips up Homer's newspaper, scoffs his breakfast, and then - horror of horrors - savages his $125 sneakers (shop salesman: "Sorry, our warranty doesn't cover acts of dog.") So what can you do with a canine catastrophe? Send him to obedience school run by a sadistic Englishwoman with a voice uncannily like Tracey Ullman's. Unfortunately all the vicious tugs on the choke chain in the world cannot teach Santa to sit.
So begins a new chunk of Simpson family life, the first of two this week. In Friday's episode (6pm BBC2), Homer loses the love of his daughter Lisa and tries to buy it back. As Marge would disapprovingly say: "Hmmm".


Unknown: Tracey Ullman

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.
