: Take Me Home

Until Tony (Goodbye Cruel World) Marchant's love story was shown in 1989, Keith Barron was beginning to specialise in comedy with sitcoms such as Late Expectations and Duty Free.
This was a chance for him to get back to "the serious stuff".
The three-part series, starting its repeats tonight, is about a taxi driver in a new town whose disturbing encounter with a much younger, married woman, leads to a passionate and traumatic affair. Apparently the part possessed a special significance for Barron. He told Radio Times: "I've always said that if my acting dried up, I'd drive a taxi." With recent appearances In Haggard and The Good Guys, it's unlikely that he'll be doing "the knowledge" yet.

: Film 94 with Barry Norman

Tonight's programme is given over to an interview with one of me rum industry's best known outsiders, Robert Altman.
In a frank discussion that covers his beliefs and work ethics, Altman explains how he has survived the Hollywood jungle (don't worry the accountants and they won't worry you) and describes how he has been in and out of favour with the film industry since he made MASH in 1970. When Barry Norman suggests to Robert Altman that he is a maverick, the film director denies it but says "not everything has to be done the same way".
Since MASH, Altman has made 30 films including
Nashville, Popeye and, in 1992, The Player. He says he is proud of them all though: "these films are like children to me and you tend to love your least successful child the most".
His latest film, Short Cuts, hasjust earned him an Oscar nomination for best director.

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.
