Kenny's Christmas Cracker


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.
Kenny Everett
Kenny throws open his portals to welcome one and all to his holiday extravaganza. Watch
Reg Prescott demonstrate his DIY Christmas, watch Napoleon Bonaparte with some handy battle hints, and watch several Trappist monks with their own ideas for a quiet holiday. All this and what your body means when it moves, and an opportunity to join in community singing whether you want to or not. Together with popular group Spandau Ballet singing their latest single, this is a cracker of a show.

Kenny's Christmas Cracker

BBC One London, 23 December 1986 20.30

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.
