: Target: Shipment

by David Wickes and Philip Hinchcliffe
Starring Patrick Mower as Hackett with Philip Madoc, Brendan Price and Vivien Heilbron

9.25 pm Target: a new police series starring Patrick Mower.
Here Lesley Thornton, who writes our feature on page 4, describes the work of the Regional Crime Squads
"If a terrorist throws a bomb or hijackers grab a plane anywhere in Britain outside London the Regional Crime Squad goes into action. They're the CID elite of their area. Unlike the London-based specialists of the Flying Squad or the Bomb Squad, the non-London Regional Crime Squads take on all and any large-scale crime in their sphere of operations. In 'Target', Det-Supt Hackett is officer in charge of operations in such a squad. He and his team tackle drug smugglers, murder hunts, bombers, fraud, the lot. A target is formally denned as 'a person active in the commission of serious crime' - a top villain in fact. A major function of a squad like Hackett's is tracking down criminal suspects like these, maintaining intelligence systems on them and catching them in - or before - the act. In the first episode Hackett gets a tip-off linking a longstanding target criminal with a mysterious ship's cargo worth half a million. The subsequent murder of his informant sets Hackett on a personal vendetta."

: The Late Film: The Family Way

starring Hayley Mills, Hywel Bennett, John Mills, Marjorie Rhodes with Avril Angers, Liz Fraser, Wilfred Pickles, John Comer, Barry Foster, Murray Head
The wedding of Arthur and Jenny is a typical North of England family affair, but afterwards one disaster seems to follow another. On their wedding night the young couple's bed (rigged by Arthur's boss) collapses, and next day so does their honeymoon in Majorca when they discover that the travel agent has absconded with everybody's money. The marriage seems doomed to failure before it has really begun.

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.
