The French connection: a trip to Paris for the EastEnders to solve a few problems of the heart ...

EastEnders 8.00pm BBC1
Why do the residents of Albert Square think that if they pop over to France for a few days it will solve all their problems? It never does. However, a group of them are off to Paris and with two extra episodes in the schedules it means something big is going to happen. But to whom?
Let's consider the options.

It surely can't be Grant and Tiffany, who have only just had their marriage blessed and seem positively lovey-dovey for characters in a soap? It could be Ricky and Bianca, though. We already know they have kept secrets from each other in the past. Or it could be Kathy and Phil, whose marriage has hit the rocks more times than Phil has said, "Make mine a pint." Be warned, though, that the repercussions of this storyline have the potential to create a bigger rift than the San Andreas fault line.

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.
