See today's choices.

Roughnecks 9.30pm BBC 1
After five weeks on board the Osprey, the roughnecks' thoughts are beginning (somewhat unsurprisingly) to turn to love. Tonight's episode, the last but one in the current series, sees a widespread outbreak of the tender passion: Cinders confesses his love for Rene, Hilary tries to ask Ceefax on a date, while Chris and Heather provide the heartbreak. But, just in case anyone feels the need for an immediate passion killer, there's a karaoke challenge in the offing, featuring a selection of the burliest lads who have decided to perform a number as those disco perennials the Village People.

: Redcaps: A Lost Innocence

Last in the documentary series about the military police.

Drugs are becoming a problem for the army. As many as one in four soldiers are starting to dabble in them, but the special undercover drugs intelligence team of the Royal Military Police is more interested in the pushers and dealers than in occasional users.

Operations extend across Europe, from Hamburg and Bremen to the drug havens of Holland. Captain John Wooldridge of the Royal Military Police suspects that there is a serious drug problem in a regiment stationed in Germany. He summons the Redcaps' drugs intelligence team to target a soldier who is making mysterious journeys at night.


Subject: Captain John Wooldridge
Producer: Roger Mills
Executive Producer: Edward Mirzoeff

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.
