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.
Celebrity guests and snooker stars team up as pantomime double acts: comedian Bernie Clifton appears as the goose with Steve Davis as Mother Goose ; 'Allo 'Allo! star Vicki Michelle as Prince Charming is partnered by Stephen Hendry as Cinderella; while Olympic gold medallist Tessa Sanderson joins Dennis Taylor as the Babes in the Wood. Jim Davidson takes on the role of Aladdin to present the show, while Genie John Virgo tries to keep everything under control, ably assisted by Stanley Unwin as Merlin the Magician.

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.
