The Wednesday Play

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.
First in a season of eight trail-blazing television dramas from the 60s and 70s.
Up the Junction
Nell Dunn's play follows three Battersea girls in search of a good time. First shown in 1965, this was a TV milestone, a crossroads between drama, documentary and musical and one of the first plays to be shot on film. Co-star Carol White and director Ken Loach made the equally controversial Cathy Come Home in 1966. Producer James MacTaggart

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.
