: Between the Lines

"He's the bedrock of the department," says Between the Lines producer Peter Norris of the police Complaints Investigation Bureau's Harry Naylor. But in tonight's episode of this critically acclaimed drama Naylor's future is in jeopardy.
With his wife terminally ill, Naylor has been moonlighting for a security firm to raise funds for her treatment. Faced with a disciplinary hearing, will he go quietly? Will he fight? Will his boss Tony Clark stand by him?
This is the first of three episodes which conclude the current series and were written by the programme's creator J.C. Wilsher. Clark's infatuation with Angela Berridge continues. "In the first series he was the tough character who would kick his women out," says Norris. "Now It's the other way round."
Berridge's husband is played by Robin Ellis, best remembered for his role in Poldark.

: Omnibus: Who Killed Tchaikovsky?

A hundred years ago Tchaikovsky died suddenly In St Petersburg, within days of conducting the work many consider to be his greatest, the Pathetique Symphony.
How did the great composer meet his death? Officially, he died of cholera, but a Russian emigre living in America has produced evidence to show that he was forced to commit suicide.
Anthony Holden conducts an investigation into the mystery, and the film follows clues in New York, St. Petersburg and Moscow, clues within the music and the known facts of Tchaikovsky's life, in search of the facts behind the composer's untimely death.


Writer/Presenter: Anthony Holden
Producer: John Purdie
Series Editor: Nigel Williams

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.
