: Roland Rat-The Series

Tonight the acting bug strikes Roland's incompetent crew. All of them deserve an award.... not for acting, but for keeping their names on the credits. Special rodent guest star is Ross Davidson in a multi-million pound remake of The Bridge on the River Kwai, Ross's first starring role since he kicked the bucket in EastEnders. Other guests include
John Challis and Nik Kershaw , not to mention the irrepressible Darcey de Farcey (JAMES SAXON) and the gorgeous
Maureen McConkey (ANNA KAREN).

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.
