In at the Deep End


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.
In tonight's programme Paul Heiney becomes a stand-up comedian performing a spot as a female impersonator in front of one of the most critical audiences in show business on the bill of the ' oscar night ' of clubland.
His act is written by JIMMY PERRY , co-author of Hide-Hi! who warns ' This is like giving you half-a-dozen riding lessons and putting you in the Grand National'.
Paul is advised and encouraged by the top names in comedy including Ken Dodd , Danny La Rue , Kenneth Williams , Little and Large, Beryl Reid and Marti Caine - but even they cannot protect him from the terrifying ordeal in store on the big night.

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.
