I Bride and gloom: Wendy's wedding day brings a few shocks and surprises in Sunburn
8.55pm BBCl It seems that every person in the fictional resort of Limanaki has a relationship problem: either unrequited love (or lust), two-timing (or in the case of a handsome new rep three-timing), or simply due to a misunderstanding.
The main story revolves around a young couple who arrive in Cyprus with the intention of getting married with the minimum of fuss. No cake, no flowers, no church they tell Carol, who is trying to organise it. "We wanted a quiet wedding in a Penge registry office but our family had other plans," explains the woman, pathetically.
Then, as happens in all the best dramas, the family turns up. Before you can say "wedding bells", the whole event spirals out of control with accusations being thrown around like confetti.

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.
