: Peter Sellers Double Bill: I'm All Right Jack

starring Peter Sellers, Ian Carmichael, Terry-Thomas, Richard Attenborough
Corrupt businessmen, incompetent managers and obstinate shop stewards are all mercilessly and equally lampooned in this famous Boulting Brothers' satire. Ian Carmichael is the hopelessly incompetent innocent who breaks the rules of the game and Peter Sellers excels as a pillar of shortsighted integrity.

: Blue Peter Review of the Year

with Simon Groom, Janet Ellis and Michael Sundin
It was the year Blue Peter turned detective and collected a few bruises!
Remember when Bill and Ben, the stolen Flower Pot Men, were rescued in the nick of time? And when Peter Hawkins revealed the mystery of the Flob-a-Dob Flower Pot language? How was Michael transformed into Tik Tok, the mini-robot from Oz? Was Janet really chopped in three? How can you trampoline with skis on - and what was the secret of the see-through bath?
Other highlights include World Land Speed Record holder Richard Noble's fire-fighting car, the agony of the Royal Navy Field Gun race, the muddy battle of Ashbourne Football and how free-falling Janet broke her pelvis!
If you missed any of these magic moments in 1984 today is your chance to catch up - and look ahead to 1985.

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.
