: Bruce Forsyth's Generation Game

Bruce Forsyth and Rosemarie Ford return for the fifth, and apparently last ever, series of the Generation Game. As always details of the actual games are kept secret right up until the recording of the show, but producer
David Taylor promises that there will be old favourites, such as variations of the "potters wheel game", as well as new ones. And of course there will be dances - from Samoan to the can-can - and plays in which the contestants must show their acting ability.
A host of celebrity guests are lined up for future shows, including Rolf Harris, Frank Carson and June Whitfield, as well as two sporting giants who have to keep their modesty intact while assisting in a bed-making exercise.
The programme plays its part in the BBC's French Challenge initiative when Mireille Johnston flies in to demonstrate la cuisine francaise.

: Challenge Anneka

Anneka Rice sets out to "make the impossible possible" with the aid of enthusiastic and energetic volunteers. The town of Burnham-on-Sea has a Marine Rescue boat on standby but because there is no boat house on the shore the boat is stored miles inland in the Somerset countryside. Anneka's challenge this week is to build a new lifeboat station, but she only has 72 hours to complete the job. Will she sail through the task before her or be left high and dry?

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.
