: 2 Point 4 Children: Greed

Return of the popular comedy series centred around the home-life of the Porter family.
The Porters argue about how to spend the lottery jackpot. See today's choices.
Gary Olsen 's Kind of Day: page

Lottery fever grips the Porter household in the first of a new series of 2 Point 4 Children
2 point 4 Children
8.30pm BBC 1
The first episode of this new series finds the Porter family in upheaval. Ben's bought a lottery ticket, despite an existing house agreement that the lottery is a waste of money ("a tax on the stupid" as Bill puts it). But, as Ben insists, this is a rollover week... and besides, he'd be more than willing to share his millions with the rest of the family. Unfortunately for him, his lottery ticket is in the pocket of his jeans - and his jeans are in the washing machine.
Andrew Marshall's comedy returns in top form, with Gary Olsen, Belinda Lang and the rest of the regular cast and a set of snappy, topical scripts. Last year's series scored audiences of over 13 million, making the Porters the first family of British sitcom. Find out about Gary Olsen's My Kind of Day on page 154.

: Omnibus: Artist Unknown

The art of Africa is something seen as being as mysterious as the continent itself. As the Royal Academy's exhibition Africa: Art of a Continent opens, tonight's Omnibus tells the story of a bronze mask, tracing it from an antique shop in London to its original home in Nigeria. The story it has to tell is one of magic, greed and an extraordinary, hidden tradition.

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.

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