Another impossible crime faces Jonathan and Maddy when a beautician is accused of murdering her plastic surgeon.

Followed by National Lottery Update

Maddy (Caroline Quentin) copes with murder and a blind date with Shetford (Nigel Planer) in Jonathan Creek
Jonathan Creek
8.10pm BBC1
In the first two stories we've had a murderer who pulled the trigger with her big toe and a man found shot in a nuclear bunker that was locked from the inside. Now, in tonight's story, The Reconstituted Corpse, the mind boggles.
Zola Zbzewski has, for ten years, had her face and body nipped, tucked, lifted, injected and abraded, and feels, literally, like a different person. Naturally, there is a price to pay: her cosmetic surgeon, with whom she has been having an affair, threatens to go to the papers after being dumped for a younger model.
And he would have done, had he not been brutally murdered in his Harley Street surgery. Zbzewski is the prime suspect - but did she do it? Sounds like another case for Magellan (Caroline Quentin) and Creek (Alan Davies).

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.
