'Lost' sitcoms of the 90s 21 August 2015

: Pie in the Sky: The Best of Both Worlds

After 25 years in the force, Richard Griffiths's heavyweight detective is more interested in culinary pursuits than the pursuit of criminals. Henry Crabbe has a dream - to retire and open a restaurant. His accountant wife is not so keen, but then she's practically taste-blind. His superior isn't enthusiastic either, but then he doesn't want to lose Crabbe's sleuthing skills.
This new ten-part drama series comes from the same stable as Lovejoy and Auf Wiedersehen Pet and is created by Andrew Payne, who wrote some of the early Minder episodes and, more recently, You, Me and It. This first episode, The Best of Both Worlds, features Michael (To Play the King) Kitchen as an international villain.

In the wake of the massacre at
Hebron last month by a Jewish fundamentalist, another chance to see this 1992 film on the Jewish Gush Emunim settlers on the Palestinian West Bank. The settlers argue that God commands them to occupy biblical lands - rhetoric and territorial claims which the film explores and traces to their religious roots.

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.
