The Wednesday Play: The Gorge


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 Peter Nichols

The family set off for a picnic in the country with all the paraphernalia - the cine camera, the frozen barbecued chicken - all of which is looked on, with sixth-form cynicism and disgust, by the family's son. Nor does he think he's going to enjoy the trip round the Cheddar Gorge...

The Wednesday Play: The Gorge

BBC One London, 4 September 1968 21.05

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.
