The 8.15 from Manchester


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.
Ross King, Charlotte Hindle and Dianne Oxberry pass the pop pizza to the Mock Turtles and learn how to photograph wildlife with special guest
Chris Packham. There's music and mixing from Norman Cook of Beats International and a survey of sludge with Ron Freethy. Plus, special effects make-up artists demonstrate how to look horribly ugly. And introducing a new booklet written by Roald Dahl that carries a warning to stay off the railway lines! Meanwhile, down in the woods, there are Ewoks, Killer
Tomatoes and the raving Rentaghost rowdies! Director Alan Yardley
Series producer Martin Day

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.
