: House of Cards

The critics reached for their superlatives when Andrew Davies 's four-part adaptation of Michael Dobbs 's political thriller, set in the not-too-distant future, was first shown In 1990.
Ian Richardson stars as Francis Urquhart , a treacherous government chief whip who will stop at nothing to get himself installed in No 10. "Being about the demise of a female prime minister and her replacement by a bit of a wimp, It was very timely," says Richardson (who also played traitors in Tinker,
Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Blunt), " but I suspect it has become timely again!" Describing
Urquhart as "a monstrous little man striving to achieve power", he adds: "The man has no qualities I admire, which made him very exciting to play.
A sequel by the same team,
To Play the King, begins shortly after this repeat showing ends. 1: Who will be the next prime minister? The Machiavellian
Francis Urquhart sets to work on a dark and devious plan for ultimate power.

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.
