: Noel's House Party

Noel Edmonds opens the doors of his well-appointed residence In the picturesque village of Crinkley Bottom for the third series of Noel's House Party.
Famed for its friendly if wayward residents and its ever-ready gunge-tank, Crinkley Bottom has become, accordingto Edmonds, the most famous village in Britain.
"Everyone's heard of it," he says. "It's as famous as Ambridge."
The recipe of celebrity guests, games and the dreaded Gotchas (this series features another list of gullible "clients") has proved successful for Edmonds - and the Ideal family TV formula. "There's been such a proliferation of TV hardware over the last few years that everyone tends to go to their rooms to watch their own thing," he says. "House Party is one of the few television events that families actually watch together."

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
