: Between the Lines

A familiar if not particularly friendly face returns in this week's episode of the police drama, which has been getting excellent notices from the press.
It's the first of a two-part story written by the series creator J C Wilsher. It provides Complaints Investigation Bureau's Tony Clark with a chance to settle old scores with his former boss, Chief
Superintendent John Deakin , who is now working with Special Branch. In the first episode of this series Deakin was acquitted by a jury of criminal charges brought against him by Clark.
They are involved in the suspected execution by the IRA of a police informer, who it is said, was under pressure from Special Branch. The Home
Office's Angela Berridge adds her own mystique and Harry Naylor , now CID not CIB, is also called on to lend a hand.
The story, and the series, conclude next week.

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.
