: THE GOON SHOW

with Peter Sellers
Harry Secombe , Spike Milligan in 'The Booted Gorilla' (found?)
On an expedition to Chinese West Africa, Bwana Bloodnok and Bwana Seagoon are hot on the trail of the gorilla when the footprints disappear behind a pepper bush, and, in their place, impressions of hobnail boots emerge. Could it be the heat? Bwana Seagoon contacts Bwana Grytpypethynne of the London Gorilla Society, who recommends the only way to trap the booted gorilla is to erect a portable boot repairer's shop in the jungle. Then suddenly, in the sleepy little Somerset village of Low Ham and East Coker, the local cobbler's shop is put up for sale. Why are the owners, Mr. Crun and Miss Bannister, anxious to emigrate to Chinese West Africa? Could it be the heat? And how is it that cobbler Crun is an adept at making boots for gorillas?

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
