: Hotel

This new eight-part affectionate, but irreverent, series takes a glimpse behind the scenes of Liverpool's Adelphi hotel. The first programme follows Grand National weekend-the Adelphi's busiest three days of the year. With the hotel at bursting point, staff are besieged by desperate racegoers, trainers and jockeys after the race is abandoned following a terrorist alert.

See today's choices.
The first all-star hotel: page 6

Service with a smile: general manager Eileen Downey puts on a brave face at Hotel Adelphi.

Hotel 9.30pm BBC1
The first in an eight-part documentary series about the Hotel Adelphi, a Liverpool landmark, starts with 20,000 racegoers stuck in the city when an IRA bomb alert delays the Grand National. The scenes are sometimes hilarious, sometimes hysterical, as the busiest time of the year for the hotel revs up. Hundreds of desperate punters need rooms and the banqueting room is opened with mattresses at £45 each.
The organised chaos, a mixture of Blitz spirit and commercial concern as prices go through the roof, is intensified by the forced removal of a tired and emotional customer and an exotically dressed working girl, plus the scenes of jockeys trying to lose weight in the sauna after bingeing.

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.
