The Andrew Duncan interview with Nigel Le Vaillant : page 16

9.30pm BBC It's been a long time coming, but the passion that began to smoulder in last week's episode finally ignites tonight as Paul Dangerfield and fellow GP Joanna Stevens share a lingering kiss. And viewers can expect to see more of the same in the future. "The stuff of drama is to spin that on-off romance thing out," says Nigel Le Vaillant. "But in the end you have to deliver something". Elsewhere, Dangerfield mixes murky business with quirky pleasure. After weeks of anticipation he takes his falcon on its maiden flight but later clashes angrily with new GP Dr Roz Parker after she refuses to reveal vital murder evidence. Discover more about Nigel Le Vaillant in this week's Andrew Duncan interview on page 16.

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.
