Screen Two: Dirtysomething


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.
When Dog and Becca meet at the _ Glastonbury Festival,
It's Crusty Love at first sight.
With his trusty hound Leggit and fellow "traveller" Captain Larry, the happy couple trade a life on the road for the relative security of a squat. But the squat becomes a home and a home, however humble, demands home improvements - and an income to support them.
Can Dog and Becca remain true to their roots? Or will colour charts and shelving units get the better of them? Peter Saimi and Carl Prechezer ' s comedy pits the hippy ideals of the New Age against the yuppy aspirations of suburbia.
Rachel Weisz , recently seen as Mathilde in Scarlet and Black, stars as Becca; Rufus Sewell
(Will Ladislaw from Middlemarch) plays her boss Clive, and Bernard Hill, making his second appearance in this season of Screen Two after Skallagrigg, plays Captain Larry.

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.
