The Debt


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.
Warren Clarke stars in a two-part crime caper about the relationship between a criminal, a detective and a lawyer, each of whom tells their story from different perspectives. Released from prison three years ago, retired safecracker Geoff is determined to stay on the straight and narrow.
When, however, his son-in-law Terry gets into arrears with a loan shark, Geoff comes under pressure to do one last job to pay off Terry's debt. Concludes tomorrow at 9pm.

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.
