: The Singing Detective

When Dennis Potter delivered the scripts for this six-part drama in 1984, they were greeted with "excitement, confusion, consternation and, let's be frank about it, terror," wrote former BBC head of drama
Jonathan Powell in his tribute to one of television's most controversial writers, who died last month. But when the series was screened, many critics hailed it as a masterpiece and a milestone in TV drama and only a few called it "shocking".
The distinguished cast is headed by Michael Gambon who stars as the writer of cheap detective fiction afflicted with such chronic psoriasis that reality and fantasy mingle in his feverish brain. In his less lucid moments he relives his wartime childhood "when you heard songs coming up the stairs when you were supposed to be asleep" and re-creates one of his own pulp novels with himself as the hero. In this first episode, Skin, the body of a naked girl is pulled from the River Thames.

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.
