: Men of the World: Match of the Day

The name David Threlfall is usually linked with serious drama such as ITV's Paradise Postponed and Titmuss Regained and the BBC's Clothes in the Wardrobe. Tonight he makes his BBC comedy debut with this new sitcom written by and featuring Teenage Health Freak's Daniel Peacock.
Birds of a Feather creators Maurice Gran and Laurence Marks are the producers (with Claire Hinson). Threlfall plays Lenny, a thirty-something travel agent, separated from his wife and keen to impart his wisdom to his innocent young colleague and lodger, Kendle Bains.
In this first episode, Match of the Day, Kendle is taught the importance of golden memories when Lenny desperately tries to prove he scored the winning goal in his school's under-11s challenge cup.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
