EastEnders 7.30pm BBC1
What on earth did EastEnders do before the advent of the lovely Alfie (Shane Richie)? He's kind-hearted, cheerful, thoughtful and never - not yet, anyway - shows any inclination to beat anyone to a pulp (always a big bonus in a soap that could occasionally be mistaken for Gangs of New York). In all, he's a very welcome addition to the Albert Square tapestry.
Tonight, with his usual perspicacity, Alfie realises that something is badly wrong with Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) after last night's traumatic events. Naturally she's putting on a brave face, but Alfie knows that she's badly hurt. Thus he announces a little surprise that will cheer her up no end. But before she takes Alfie up on his offer, Kat has to clear the air with her dreary ex-lover, Dr Trueman. (Alison Graham)

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.
