The Friday Play: Porshia

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.
Thomas is a no-hope poet who obsesses about Porshia, a young woman at the office, way out of his league. When one day he wakes up inside her head - literally - he begins to experience the life of his fantasy woman from closer than he might feel comfortable with. Will Thomas's love for Porshia survive a visit from her hunky boyfriend? Can he keep a cool head and retain his own identity? A play by Ed Harris for our sexualised times.
Producer/Director Graham Frost

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
