Crime Drama: New Tricks 9.00pm BBC1
For a trio of geriatrics, Jack, Gerry and Brian behave alarmingly like little schoolboys. They pass notes behind teacher's back (or rather that of Supt Pullman), skip "class" whenever they can and constantly squabble. If they left chewing gum stuck under their desk and stuck their tongues out at grown-ups, no one would be surprised. They're unquestionably juvenile, but even so there are moments in tonight's episode that almost made me laugh, they were so ridiculous.
Gerry has to repay a Â£10,000 debt to bookie Michael Jacobs by unofficially investigating the death of Jacobs's dad outside Walthamstow dog track in 1983. And yes, there are lots of jokes about "going to the dogs", people being "hounded", "barking up the wrong tree", and "tailing suspects" etc. Former EastEnder Gillian Taylforth guests as a glamorous greyhound trainer, while Philip Whitchurch, who played Tyler in My Hero, plays Jacobs's older brother. Undemanding but entertaining enough. (Jane Rackham)

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.
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.
