The Friday Play: Pleas and Directions


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 PG Duggan. In September 1996, Alexandra Sablatnig , an Austrian tourist, was brutally raped by a gang of youths on a London canal bank. This play is based on this shocking event and its extraordinary aftermath - a love that was born out of courage, determination and the sheer will to survive.
Music composed by David Dorward and played by Shinobu Miki (clarinet), Hector Scott (violin) and Claire Morton (cello)

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.
