Floyd on Italy


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.
— What is Italian food?
Well it's not deep-pan pizza filled with chicken tikka pieces nor is it lasagne served with coleslaw, as the exuberant Keith Floyd demonstrates in his new seven-part series - or "gastronomic grand tour" as he prefers to call it.
In this first programme,
Liguria and Piedmont, he sets up his famous portable stove in a market square. Using regional produce he cooks red mullet in pesto sauce, then it's on to
Piedmont where he prepares bollito - a gargantuan meat stew - and goes truffle hunting with a local farmer.

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.
