Tuesday at Eight


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.
Theatre Date: The Crunch
Andrew Cruickshank stars in scenes from the new comedy by FELICITY douglas and BASIL DAWSON from the stage of the St Martin 's Theatre, London
(A Sherwood and Reid and Richard Pilbrow presentation of the Prospect production)
The crunch comes when Henry Oldershaw , headmaster of King Edward's Grammar School, is faced with an overwhelming financial problem. Is he to solve this according to the dictates of his own conscience - or is he tempted to listen to his less-principled old friend, Willy?

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.
