Recorded at the Robin Hood Theatre, Averham
For as far back as they can remember, the famous Cambridge Footlights Revue Club has paid an annual visit to the tiny Robin Hood Theatre near the village of Averham, not far from Newark. The theatre sells out every night for a week as far-flung Notts people motor in to watch the Footlights perform the material from which sketches and songs are selected soon after to be presented at their own show on the Edinburgh Fringe. For the Footlights it is a working holiday. Their spirits are light and anything that goes wrong tends to be incorporated in the show. Since the cast, who write all their own sketches, music, and lyrics, live in a loft above the theatre, new ideas can be tried out within minutes.

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.
