: Pie in the Sky

The chips are down for Henry Crabbe - hand-cut Maris Pipers , double fried to make them crispy and served with minted mushy peas, as he is at pains to point out.
How to make real chips is the culinary tip in this, the last episode of the series. Perhaps it is this "free recipe with every episode" that has contributed to the success of Andrew Payne 's drama series, although it's more likely to be the way viewers have taken Richard Griffiths and his cop-turned-cook to their hearts. Not surprisingly another series is currently being planned.
In n Endangered Species,
Crabbe is called in to arrest the ringleaderofagroupprotesting against the building of a new road - but some protesters are uncomfortably close to home.

: Everyman

A second marriage, Dr Johnson once observed, is the triumph of hope over experience. In ... for Worse the second of two documentaries about matrimony in Britain, six people who have each been married at least four times talk about their experience of divorce and repeated marital failures.
The programme opens at one couple's divorce party, but not all the splits were so amicable and some of them resulted from physical abuse. Among those sharing their views is Annabel, a Catholic who is about to marry for the fifth time and yet still believes it will be for ever, and four-times-divorced Tony who thinks it is the exclusivity of a marriage contract that results in its failure.

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.
