In this second programme, the Champney family allow the cameras into their South Wirral bungalow to study the way they behave at home. In this family with two teenagers, who does the housework? And does the "new man" exist? Judy, John, Matthew and Kelly discuss their roles in the home.
There is an update on their "performance" tonight at 8.50pm. Also watching and commenting on the Champneys' behaviour are next Monday's subjects, the Fletchers from Yorkshire.

: Tomorrow's World

Has Big Brother taken to the roads? A new computer system on trial in Cambridge not only takes a picture as you speed past but also raises the alarm if it's a stolen car. But the system keeps a record of all vehicles that pass, not just the "hot" cars. Would this make the roads free from thieves and joyriders, or a land without freedom?

: Only Fools and Horses: Danger UXD

While addicts of John Sullivan's comedy classic, starring David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, are saddened by his Christmas message that Del and Rodney Trotter have possibly made their final programme, there is now comfort that a series first screened in 1989 is starting repeat run.
The first episode, Yuppy Love, was shown in October as part of BBC2's After Margaret season. This second story, Danger UXD, finds Del still influenced by Gordon Gecko and the film Wall Street. But his new sophisticated image is punctured by 50 fire-damaged inflatable dolls. Meanwhile Rodders finds that love is in the air.

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.
