: The Making of the Royal Variety Performance, 1985

Introduced by Max Bygraves There's just 54 hours from the first rehearsal on the stage of Theatre Royal, Drury Lane to the arrival of HM The Queen for the 1985 Royal Variety Performance. In that short time, theatre director
Norman Maen must marshal! 116 dancers and 58 stars to produce the equivalent of a full-scale West End musical. The task is complicated by the requirements of the TV company under the direction of Alan Boyd. Away from the stage, photographers gather for the arrival of Joan Collins ; producer Louis Benjamin sips tea from the best china; and just ten minutes from the actual finale the would-be Fred Astaires show no signs of getting it right.

: The Singing Detective: 1: Skin

A film with music in six parts by Dennis Potter
Starring Michael Gambon with Patrick Malahide and Joanne Whalley
What is the connection between the beady private eye crooning soft songs at the Laguna, and the disfigured man struggling for his sanity in a hospital bed?
Why does the small boy spy from the top of the tree, and who is the naked girl dragged out of the murky Thames? The clues are bloody and tangled, but the singing detective knows that the answers will eventually jump out of him as long as he keeps singing the right tunes.

: Everyman

The Beyond Within
The first of two programmes The Rise of LSD
Lysergic acid diethylamide - more commonly known as LSD - is one of the most potent pharmacological substances known to science.
It is also the most controversial. One ten-thousandth of a gram, an amount invisible to the naked eye, can precipitate some of the most powerful experiences in the repertory of human consciousness.
Tonight Everyman traces the turbulent history of this remarkable substance. Are psychedelic drugs merely dangerous and subversive poisons, or do they tell us something important about reality, consciousness and the relationship between them? Among those appearing are
Dr Albert Hofmann , the man who discovered the drug in 1943; Humphry Osmond , who coined the term 'psychedelic' and administered mescaline to Aldous Huxley ; and Lord Christopher Mayhew who, 30 years ago, took part in a filmed experiment with a hallucinogenic drug, shown tonight for the first time.

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.
