: The Dukes of Hazzard: Double Sting

The Duke cousins' main pleasure in life is beating the system and baiting the sheriff of Hazzard County where the good guys are outlaws and everybody's in-laws.

A film series starring Tom Wopat as Luke Duke, John Schneider as Bo Duke, Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke, Denver Pyle as Uncle Jesse Duke, James Best as Sheriff Coltrane, Sorrell Booke as Boss Hogg
with Ben Jones as Cooter, Sonny Schroyer as Enos

Too many coincidences, even for Hazzard county. The bank is robbed as a case of suspected plague quarantines Sheriff Coltrane, his entire force. Boss Hogg and the Dukes, isolating them all in the jail-house. Only Daisy and Crazy Cooter are left at large to take up the chase.

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.
