Buddy's Song


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.
Family drama with music, starring
Roger Daltrey
Chesney Hawkes Sharon Duce
With everyone around him apparently behaving without rhyme or reason, especially his parents, teenager Buddy takes refuge in music. However, rather than cover the 50s rock numbers his teddy-boy father
Terry adores, Buddy aspires to more personal material.
Director Claude Whatham (1990)

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.
