The Crafty Cockney

Synopsis

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.
A Profile of the World Darts Champion - Eric Bristow
' I wish his old man had taken him to Sunday School instead of the pub.'
That is darts star Tony Brown talking about a man on the brink of a hat-trick.
The man is Eric Bristow , whose arrogant public image is as distinctive as his praying mantis style on the oche.
Bristow tells his story from being a pub-hustler at 16 to the 24-year-old cockney who's well on the way to his first million.
He never did go to Sunday School....
Narrated by SID WADDELL
Produced by MIKE ADLEY , BBC Manchester

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.
