Jute City


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.
Three-part mystery thriller starring actor and mimic John Sessions as a hapless, bungling Scottish private eye. David Kane , remembered for his acclaimed
Screen Two films Dream Baby and Shadow on the Earth, has written a taut conspiracy adventure in the John Buchan tradition.
In part 1, high-flying economist Duncan Kerr returns to his home town of Dundee from a career in the city which has landed him in jail. He's back to act as best man at his brother's wedding, but soon finds himself in a world more frightening than the prison he has left behind. A strong cast includes Romania's leading actor (and former vice-president) Ion Caramitru. The music is by Eurythmics star Dave Stewart.

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.
