: The Imaginatively Titled Punt and Dennis Show

Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis, who contributed sketches to "Canned Carrott" before finding fame with David Baddiel and Rob Newman in "The Mary Whitehouse Experience", bring their double act to television for a new six-part series.
"We're transferring the identity we've established on the stage comedy circuit to TV", says Punt. "The show is a mixture of stand-up, sketches, bits on film, a sitcom set in a fast-food restaurant and a serial about the world's worst assassin."
"You know the scene," adds Dennis. "He's chopping wood when a car screeches up. He's a very hard man, living in retirement since that business in Budapest. But he's lured back for one last job."
Apart from the filmed routines everything will be recorded as close as possible to transmission, "with as few re-takes as we can get away with," to keep a freshly-minted flavour to the comedy.

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.
