Comrade Dad


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.
by IAN DAVIDSON and PETER VINCENT starring George Cole and Barbara Ewing Doris Hare
'Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and saves electricity.' Such sound and lateral thinking cannot protect Reg from a spasm of good old-fashioned jealousy.
Produced and directed by JOHN KILBY

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.
