: Noel's House Party

Prepare to hide behind the sofa! The second part of the special Doctor Who adventure, Dimensions in Time, bursts from the screen in glorious 3-D In tonight's House Party.
The first part of the story was shown last night as part of Children in Need, and ended with the traditional cliffhanger. The evil Rani (Kate O'Mara ) has five of the Doctors (Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy) caught in a time loop in the East End of London, where he meets some suspiciously familiar characters. Will the power of Rani triumph? Or will the Doctor escape to fight another day? It's up to the viewers to decide, in a special phone vote.
The results of the vote will be seen on tonight's show, so have your 3-D glasses at the ready. Also appearing in Crinkley Bottom are actors Michael Crawford and Clive Dunn. Athlete Kriss Akabusi gets a Gotcha, and Arsenal footballer Ian Wright Grabs-a -Grand. Producer Jonathan Beazley
Executive producer Michael Leggo

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.
