: The Saturday Picture Show

Presented by Mark Curry and Cheryl Baker and featuring Gary Davies and Michael Jordan
Mark and Cheryl say goodbye to the Picture Show and with the help of their guests they relive some of the best (and funniest) moments from the series, including playing outlaws in Sherwood Forest, exploring Paris, cooking blue string pudding, doing the Undy hop and nursing a chimpanzee! Gary takes a look back at the charts and at the sounds and stars of the summer of 86 including Level 42, a-ha and Doctor and the Medics.
But that's not all! There are loads of surprise guest stars dropping in to join the party - so Cheryl will be cooking again and Mark will mix the drinks (remember what happened last time!). Movie premiere - see the winning entry in the film competition on the screen today.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
