The theme tune was changed - and changed back again; other soaps have come - and gone (remember Eldorado?); and it's now screened thrice-weekly.
That Walford spirit has kept EastEnders on our screens since February 1985 and tonight, as the 1,000th episode rolls off the production line, it's Albert Square's staunch survivors, the Fowlers, who make sure things go with a swing.
As Nigel and Debbie set off for the church, it's all hands on deck in Albert Square to give them a really special day.

: Chandler and Co: Odd Job

The starting point for this new six-part drama was writer Paula Milne's fascination with surveillance techniques. She researched her subject by joining a private detective on the chase. "It's the most incredible adrenaline charge following someone. You're living off your wits - you don't know what's going to happen next."
With divorce becoming a growth industry, the idea of two women pairing up to run their own private detective agency investigating infidelity seemed a natural one. Says Milne: "Detectives tell me that 99 per cent of people who suspect their partners, are right about them being unfaithful."
In "Odd Job", sisters-in-law Dee Tate and Elly Chandler take on their first case. Both have very different reasons for getting involved.

: Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland

Taking an idiosyncratic journey through his homeland, Billy Connolly sets out on a new six-part series during which he stops off in the evenings to perform in venues ranging from the big city theatres of Glasgow and Edinburgh to isolated village halls.
The scene moves from the bulldozed Glasgow street where he was born to the shores of Loch Lomond , "my favourite place", where the play of light and shade gives it a constantly shifting beauty.
Connolly talks about his approach to performing: "The worst is to go on completely confident. You should always be jumpy." His journey is studded with samples of his unique (and jumpy) comic performances. Director William McLellan
Producer Bill Tennant

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.
