Roy Clarke 's richly matured comedy-drama, is still going strong after almost 20 years. Starring Bill Owen
Peter Sallis , Brian Wilde Quick, Quick, Slow. What could possibly dim the sunset glow that gilds the perennial boyhood of the three old reprobates as they drift through the timeless little Yorkshire town? For the hitherto irrepressible Compo it's the suspicion that Nora Batty 's new lodger, Smiler (Stephen Lewis , long remembered as the reviled inspector from On the Buses) is taking advantage of his privileged position. Fortunately, Foggy remembers a cure he learned in the jungle during the war.

Martha Gellhorn
For more than half a century, Martha Gellhorn has been writing fiction and reporting on war. An angry witness to the waste and injustice of military might, she has reported from some of the most tragic places on earth - Spain in the 1930s, Dachau, Vietnam, El Salvador. Last year, at the age of 81, she was in Panama, investigating the human cost of the American invasion. Tonight, in her first major interview for television, she talks about her career as a war correspondent and reads selections from her despatches, and discusses her highly acclaimed fiction and travel writing.

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.
