This Life: Family Outing


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.
The sixth in an 11-part comic drama.
Warren fears his indiscreet cousin will discover the secret of his sexuality; Anna tries her hand at marriage guidance and Miles tries to beat his father at his own game.
(Repeated Friday at 11.45pm)

Followed by Video Nation Shorts

This Life 9.45pm BBC2
Legal whizzkid Warren has been leading a double life - persuading his family back home in Wales that he just hasn't met the right girl yet, while actually living as a gay man in London. The game's up tonight when his pushy cousin Kira accidentally catches him in flagrante with another man, prompting Warren to confess all. Meanwhile Egg has made the big break - he's left the law, and is trying to get a job as a sports journalist. So far, however, his great new plan hasn't amounted to much: he spends all day sitting in front of the television watching football videos.

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.
