: Carry on Jack

The Saturday film starring Bernard Cribbins Kenneth Williams Juliet Mills with Charles Hawtrey Donald Houston Cecil Parker
Albert Poop-Decker finally graduates as a midshipman and is assigned to the good ship HMS Venus, hopefully pointed in the general direction of the Spanish Main. This large helping of naughty nautical nonsense is set, loosely speaking, in the heroic days of Horatio Nelson and crewed by the ever-popular Carry On team.
Presiding over as motley a bunch as ever sailed the seven seas is Kenneth Williams as the inappropriately named Captain Fearless, suitably dismayed to find most of the crew thirsting for glory and spoiling for action.

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.
