: Dangerfield: Tricks

Police medical drama, starring Nigel Le Vaillant
The wife of a suicide victim hints that malevolent forces may have caused her husband's death. See today's choices.
Written by Peter J Hammond ; Producer Peter Wolfes
DirectorJim Goddard Stereo Subtitled ..
* Practice Makes Perfect? page 26

9.30pm BBC1 More major changes for Paul Dangerfield following his cathartic emotional breakdown last week over his dead wife. Tonight, he decides to let go of the past and move out of the family home, something that unsettles Al and Marty.
Changes too at the surgery as new doctor Annie Robbins (Fiona Victory) moves into Dr Jo Stevens's old consulting rooms. She seems a difficult character and Paul ends up having to defend what she calls his dated and chauvinistic attitudes.
There is a medical storyline too of course, involving a series of bizarre deaths connected somehow to a psychic consultant (Denise Black) who helps bereaved people contact their dead friends and relatives. Read more about Nigel Le Vaillant and his screen family on page 26.

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.
