: Hudson and Halls

Peter Hudson and David Halls are two cooks from New Zealand whose television shows there, featuring their own recipes together with celebrity guest appearances, resulted in them being voted New
Zealand Entertainers of the Year. Their culinary skills and fast-talking wit combine to produce shows that are neither solely cookery programmes nor pure chat shows but a splendid mixture of both.
Now Hudson and Halls bring their own unique style of cookery entertainment to this first British television series, with a collection of their favourite recipes gathered from around the world.

Alcohol: More Harm Than Heroin
Everyone knows the horror of illegal drugs like heroin. Yet alcohol is killing far more people.
Today people drink twice as much as they did 30 years ago, and start drinking very young. Every year 1,000 children under 15 are admitted to hospital with acute alcohol poisoning and, as Richard Lindley reports, 15- to 17-year-olds now spend E277 million on drink.
Alcohol-dependent teenagers are now joining the middle-aged in psychiatric clinics. As the government announces a new ministerial group to deal with the use and abuse of alcohol,
Panorama reports on our favourite drug - one more harmful than heroin.

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.
