: Dynasty: the Reunion

The first of a special two-part mini-series tying up the glitzy soap's loose ends. Starring Joan Collins, John Forsythe, Linda Evans
Denver two years on: Blake is given a full pardon but has lost everything he possessed and fears for his life; Krystle escapes from the Swiss sanitarium; and Alexis embarks on a new business adventure.
When the American soap abruptly ended in 1989 both fans and cast were shocked.
"We should have ended with some kind of dignity," says John Forsythe. "The thousands of letters I got were all on the same theme - is this the end?
How does it all come out?"
Joan Collins feels that "to just end the show arbitrarily, up in the air like that, was quite shocking. I was surprised by the cold-blooded nature of it all. At the time I said: 'Well, I hope they're going to do a movie or something to sort of pick the whole thing up.'"

But when Adam tries to mix business with pleasure - in the "perfect" shape of aerobics instructor Jessie Wilson - he gets more than he bargains for. Watch out for a special cameo appearance by singer Carly Simon.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
