: THE GOON SHOW

Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan in ' The Lost Emperor'
Somewhere among the lichen-backed mountains of Mongolia, entombed in a sacred dustbin, lies the fabulous treasure of Fred Jenghiz Khan. For twenty long years Neddie Seagoon has examined every clue that might help him to trace the treasure of the lost emperor. Then one day, while working as a heavily disguised part-time dustman at Bethnal Green Castle, he finds a portion of the dreaded international Christmas pudding bearing a secret inscription, indicating the whereabouts of the treasure.
Seagoon sets off hot-foot for Tibet but is waylaid by two famous international criminal archaeologists who strike him down with a mummified Egyptian piano. He recovers and traces his way to the sacred dustbin, only to find that once more he has been thwarted-for all that remains is an international Italian Bootlace.

: MY FAVOURITE VILLAIN

Paul Boyle chooses
Tod Slaughter
Tod Slaughter , claims Paul Boyle , is the epitome of stage villainy, terrible in his rages, but far more terrible in his solicitude. Comedy lies at the success of his villainy-for the spice of laughter sharpens the broth of horror. ' I take the sting out of murder,' Tod Slaughter once told the speaker; adding, with his graveyard chuckle, ' I like to make a little joke of it.' with Tod Slaughter as Sweeney Todd

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.

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.
