Only Fools and Horses
9.00pm BBC1
It's three years since we last met the Trotters, but tonight they're back for a three-part mini-series that may prove to be their swansong. David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst took time off from A Touch of Frost and Goodnight Sweetheart to be reunited with writer John Sullivan for two months, during which they worked round the clock to record the latest adventures of Del Boy and Rodney.
Trotters Independent Traders Company (alias Titco pic) is lurching from one disaster to another: Del has bought 125 unpredictable Latvian radio alarms and a boxful of baseball caps "that even East 17 fans wouldn't wear". But there are compensations, not least the joys of fatherhood as little Damien grows up. Only Fools and Horses continues on Friday.


Writer: John Sullivan
Director: Tony Dow
Producer: Gareth Gwenlan
Del: David Jason
Rodney: Nicholas Lyndhurst
Uncle Albert: Buster Merryfield

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.
