: The Lifeboat: Troubled Waters

If you live on the rugged Pembrokeshire coast, there are four emergency services: police, fire, ambulance and lifeboat.
Thus when Lynda La Plante was pondering a new action-packed drama, her thoughts turned to the RNLI. " was astonished at how many lives are saved - over a thousand a year," says the author of Prime Suspect and Civvies. "That's a hell of an amount of drama at sea."
This new nine-part series centres on the fictional lifeboat station of Penrhys, where the volunteers forget their troubled on-shore lives as each maritime crisis unfolds. In the first episode, Troubled Waters, the crew waits to hear if they will be awarded a new boat, and three youngsters sail off into danger.

: QED: Plastic Fantastic

Maurice Ward is a Hartlepool hairdresser. He is also the inventor of a substance that can withstand any amount of heat, while remaining cool. The implications for science and industry are limitless.
Ward, his wife and his daughter know the formula, and he is well aware of the value of his invention, which has been christened Starlite. This means that he is also extremely cagey about revealing anything that might compromise his control over it. In turn, this makes it impossible for Starlite to be independently tested, patented or exploited.
QED follows Ward on a trip to talk to scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the USA, who realise the implications of Starlite for space travel. Ward is willing to wait for the right deal - how many millions should tempt him to sign away the secret?

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.
