Roland Rat-The Series

Synopsis

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.
Tonight the acting bug strikes Roland's incompetent crew. All of them deserve an award.... not for acting, but for keeping their names on the credits. Special rodent guest star is Ross Davidson in a multi-million pound remake of The Bridge on the River Kwai, Ross's first starring role since he kicked the bucket in EastEnders. Other guests include
John Challis and Nik Kershaw , not to mention the irrepressible Darcey de Farcey (JAMES SAXON) and the gorgeous
Maureen McConkey (ANNA KAREN).

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.
