Medical Drama: Casualty 8.45pm BBC1
After a week's absence for the Live 8 concert, Casualty returns with all its dramatic guns blazing. Selena is still recovering after being stabbed, while her estranged husband Will is getting cosy with a young blonde woman regular viewers will recognise as a right troublemaker. Abs certainly knows her as one. Bex is attacked for the second time by Pete, with startling consequences, and the paramedics are called out to a hostage situation.
But for what should be an action-packed episode, the cast seem to move in slow motion. Josh and Charlie stroll up the stairs to answer a 999 call as if they were on their way to a dull tea party. Don't they know that ambulance response times are monitored? Even worse, there's a heck of a lot of dialogue slowing things down, some of which is laughable. "It's OK. You've been stabbed," Will tells Selena consolingly. Since when is being stabbed OK? (JR)

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.
