Pyjama party: Matthew Cottle and Eddie Marsan hope to Get Well Soon

Get Well Soon
6.40pm BBC1 This new sitcom takes us to another age when pleasures were rationed, postcards were saucy and tuberculosis was rife. Written by Ray Galton and John Antrobus, it is based on the story of Galton's meeting with his Hancock and Steptoe writing partner, Alan Simpson, in a TB sanatorium.
Things don't look good for Roy (Matthew Cottle) as his mother (Anita Dobson) dumps him at the sanatorium. With a combination of broad laughs and some downright bizarre characters this is not simple, nostalgic comedy, despite its 1947 setting. This scene-setter parades a deranged RAF officer, a mad vicar and a friendly widow, all providing fertile ground for humour to back up the central characters - two young men on the make.

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.
