Some Mothers Do 'Ave'Em


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.
Continuing a repeat run of the seventies comedy series about the bungling but well-meaning Frank Spencer. Starring Michael Crawford
When Frank 's mother-in-law has a turn, he goes across the road to use his neighbour's phone and call for a doctor. His task seems straightforward enough but the accident-prone hero manages to cause chaos by giving out the wrong address.
When events become even more complicated and Spencer finds himself locked out of his own house, his attempts to locate a ladder to gain entry soon draw the attention of the authorities, who need help with their housebreaking enquiries.
Written by Raymond Allen Producer Michael Mills

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.
