An afternoon extravaganza of madcap fun as Children's BBC goes Red Nose crazy.
Featuring a galaxy of stars and exclusive Comic Relief performances from Ant and Dec, the Chuckle Brothers, Peter Simon and the Pineapple Chunks. There's also a story literally made up on the spot, and a special Red Nose edition of The Flashing Blade. Newsround goes Noseround with Comic Relief reports, and things go from Bard to verse with Simon in today's Bitsa.
Also, dug up from the BBC vaults, the pilot episode of the programme that nobody nose about - Mighty Morphing Flower Arrangers. Not only this but a battle of the brains as teams of BBC and ITV presenters battle it out to see which one nose the most. And, of course, the grand final of Splat the Celeb, proving that where gunge is concerned - nosebody does it better!
The Comic Relief fun continues at 7.00pm.

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.
