David Warner , Cilla Black with Zia Mohyeddin , David Waller Elizabeth Spriggs
In the Britain of the not too distant future, in a world of automation gone mad, Val Brose is a natural rebel. The ruling passion of his life is growing mushrooms and, after intensive experimentation, he has evolved a species which, when eaten raw, produces some very unusual effects.
Screenplay by JEREMY BROOKS adapted from the play Eh? by HENRY LIVINGS Producer THOMAS CLYDE Director PETER HALL

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.
