: Bernard and the Genie

Writer Richard Curtis sat down one Christmas determined to write something cheerful. "My family and I had just watched an Agatha Christie, during which two people were stabbed and one was forcibly injected with heroin," says the Blackadder creator. "By the end of it we were totally miserable."
Determined to provide something happier for Christmas 1991 he came up with the story of an out-of-work art dealer who polishes an antique lamp and finds himself face to face with a genie, played by Lenny Henry. "He doesn't do any of that 'Your wish is my command' cobblers," says Henry. "He's a mean genie who didn't want to go into the lamp in the first place." Watch out for appearances by Bob Geldof, Gary Lineker and Melvyn Bragg.

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.

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.
