The X Files
9.00pm BBC2 A notable episode for two reasons: it features a secret from Deep Throat and it introduces the Lone Gunmen.
EBE (the initials stand for extraterrestrial biological entity) has Mulder and Scully investigating a government cover-up over the shooting down of a UFO near the Iraq/Turkey border. Mulder calls on a group of conspiracy theorists (the Lone Gunmen) for help. Their appearance proved so popular that they returned in the second series. Also offering the agent some help is Deep Throat, who reveals he is one of three men to have actually killed an alien. But his misinformation and half-truths leave Mulder confused: "I'm wondering which lie to believe," he says at the end of the episode. .

Chief Cash: Allan Lysell
Ranheim: Peter Lacroix

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.
