Just Another Day: 1: EastEnders


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.
with John Pitman
Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life.
It's spring in Albert Square. The daffs are out; the trees are in leaf and love is in the air.
Actually it's early March; the daffs are plastic, the leaves are made of material and tied on with cotton, and Den and Angie and Dot and Ethel and the gang are shivering on the outside set at Elstree.
Today Michelle and Lofty get engaged on a bench in the square. Lofty is frozen;
Michelle is laughing. She's got her baby to keep her warm - a large vest padded with foam and muslin - 'jolly useful place to keep a hot water bottle or a hip flask' says Susan Tully who plays Michelle.
It's not easy living in a fantasy world. People keep asking Susan where her baby is. 'I tell them the truth - it's hanging up in the dressing room.'
As the day goes on, there's tragic news about Willy; Wendy Richard talks about her private life and Leslie Grantham explains why he's writing to the Guinness Book of Records.
Oh, and June Brown - Dot - says she's not worried about people from the past selling her secrets. 'My acquaintances were far too elegant,' she says, 'and anyway most of them are dead.'

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.
