Did Arthur Lowe appear in the adverts for Trillions sweets or Hanky Panky popcorn? Who marketed those essential gadgets the Record Vacuum Cleaner and the Buttoneer?
What was the real name of Opportunity Knocks winner the Musical Muscle-Man?
Danny Baker hosts this new seven-part comedy panel game which features two celebrity teams answering questions like these about a bygone era. As
Baker says, we all find it easier to recall trivial items than important ones. We may not want to remember all the words to the first commercials for Smith's Crisps, but we often do.
Craig Ferguson and Rick Wakeman are the team captains, with special guests each week.
If you're still puzzled, the answers to the questions above are Hanky Panky popcorn, Ronco and Tony Holland.

: Sweet Liberty

Comedy directed by and starring
Alan Alda , with Michael Caine
Michelle Pfeiffer
The sleepy New England town of Sayeville gets an object lesson in movie-making when a crew arrives to film a historical epic based on a local academic's book. The inhabitants discover that for today's Hollywood films characters must do three things: defy authority, destroy property, and take people's clothes off. If those elements don't fit the facts, then the facts will just have to change. So the scene is set for lust, action, romance and laughter. And that's just behind the camera.
Grace LINDA THORSON (1986)

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.

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