The Return of 'Allo 'Allo!


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.
A special one-off documentary revealing the history behind the popular British sitcom, featuring clips from the original series, a cast reunion and brand new scenes written by one of the co-creators, Jeremy Lloyd. 'Allo 'Allo! followed the farcical adventures of Rene Artois, a French cafe owner unwillingly brought into the war on both sides. The Germans forced him to hide some of the town's stolen artefacts while the cafe was used by the Resistance as a safe house for two British airmen. Rene was also conducting two affairs while trying to keep them secret from his wife, Edith. In tonight's show, Rene is back in his cafe writing his war diaries, with a little help from Yvette and some of the establishment's characters.

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.
