Sarah feels she needs an ally. When Marcus Bierlow offers his support she enthusiastically accepts it. He is a clever, distinguished-looking man with plenty of enthusiasm and energy. But Marcus has been turned down as a candidate by the two major political parties in Furness. Why? Could it be because he has a deadly enemy, plotting to undo every constructive effort he makes?

: Girl in a Black Bikini: Part 1

A thriller in six parts by John Roddick
Starring John Carson, Glyn Houston
with Angela Scoular, Calvin Lockhart, Jean Harvey

Lisa Martin was bound to be killed. She was complex and captivating - part devil, part angel. The men who competed for her were more victims than lovers; she played with them as a child plays with dolls. When, on the anniversary of her death, a dress is found at the exact spot where her body was dragged from the river, the quiet Thames-side town of West Ansford learns that 'for someone' the dream world in which Lisa lived has survived her death, twisting through jealousy to vengeance.

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.
