: The Simpsons: Bart the Daredevil

Continuing the American series of animated fun and mayhem with the Simpson family.
Homer is desperate to deter Bart from attempting some daredevil skateboard stunts.
See today's choices.
Repeated tomorrow at 1.00pm on BBC2.

The Simpsons 5.30pm BBC1 Less well known than his notorious underachievement at school are Bart Simpson's skateboarding skills. Tonight they're put to the test as Bart is inspired by celebrity daredevil Lance Murdock to pursue a career in "death defying" (after all, Murdock tells him, the USA has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world). This is a witty episode centred on the close affinity between Bart and his father, Homer, and capped at the end by a throwaway ambulance-rescue gag that many Simpsons fans count among their favourites. Tape it and you'll chuckle every time you replay it.

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.

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.
