The Street: 4/6


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.
Series three: Kieran is a lonely chef who's had enough of the influx of foreign workers into the country. After a night drinking with his mate Duffy, who is on invalidity benefit, the pair come across a burning building where a Polish girl is crying out for help.

[Photo caption] Chef Kieran (Joseph Mawle) few anger management to deal
PICK OF THE DAY The Street 9.00pm BBC1
DRAMA OF THE WEEK Joseph Mawle is in no danger of being typecast. His recent roles include Jesus and the Yorkshire Ripper, which by any standards shows a good range. He's also very, very good, with the knack of drawing us head first into the world of every character he plays.
Tonight, that's not a great place to be. He plays Kieran, a thwarted bundle of anger and prejudice who picks arguments with Polish immigrants and abuses the African cooks in the kitchen where he's head chef. Kieran is single and alone and it's not hard to see why.
However, in a deft twist of plotting, Kieran finds himself one day not only acclaimed as a hero but facing the prospect of love for the first time since his wife left him. But one thing's for sure in The Street - your weaknesses will find you out and punish you, and Kieran soon goes from being a knight in shining armour to something altogether grubbier. As another painful morality tale plays out on screen, it's very hard to look away. David Butcher The Alison Graham column: page 47

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
