Introduced by Johnny Morris and TERRY NUTKINS. It's the SCOOP of the year! Johnny and Terry have Just returned from Spain where they've been filming the baby giant panda in Madrid Zoo. It's the first time the zoo has allowed anybody outside Spain to see the baby, which was born in September. Panda births in captivity are very rare and the baby has had to be treated with great care. The biological director of Madrid Zoo, Dr Cehna, says: ' We would like Animal Magic viewers to be the first people abroad to see our baby giant panda, as a gesture from us to the children of Britain.'

Five screenplays by ALAN BLEASDALE 3: Shop thy Neighbour featuring
Michael Angelis as Chrissie Todd with Julie Walters as Angie and Jean Boht as Miss Sutcliffe
Snowy's death and the inquiry into the Malloy affair mean a rough day for both sides of the counter. For Chrissie and his wife Angie, with their dole stopped, it means a showdown - this, after all, was going to be ' her' time.
The easy going Chrissie at war with his wife, as played by the ever more impressive Michael Angelis and Julie Walters , it was a war fought tcith machine guns and sharp knives. (the GUARDIAN) Grimly and vividly comic, played with a violent and shocking intensity.

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.
