Andrew Duncan interview with Barbara Windsor: see page 20

8.00pm BBC 1 When it was announced recently that actress Letitia Dean (who plays Sharon) was leaving EastEnders but that veteran Cockney "sparrer" Barbara Windsor was joining the team at Albert Square, speculation was rife that Babs would be taking over the Queen Vic pub.
Not so. In fact Dean is not leaving until next summer and Windsor is currently contracted for only ten episodes, the first of which is tonight. She plays Peggy Mitchell, Phil and Grant's mum, who cuts her holiday on the Costa del Sol short to be at Phil's hospital bedside.
Barbara Windsor talks to Andrew Duncan on page 20.

: Panorama: The Greatest Nightmare

Is "the greatest nightmare" of being "old, sick, poor and uncared for" referred to by John Major at the Conservative Party Conference already a reality for thousands of Britain's sick and elderly? Panorama reveals how local authorities are swamped by the people that the NHS will no longer pay for. The programme uncovers evidence that money put aside for care has run dry. Not only is none available for nursing-home places but home help is also being withdrawn. Reporter Sarah Barclay talks to the elderly people who cost too much to care for.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
