Star turn: Bob Monkhouse joins Alan Davies and Caroline Quentin in Jonathan Creek.

Jonathan Creek 9.00pm BBC1
Gameshow host Bob Monkhouse makes a convincing appearance as an overweight, overbearing theatre critic in this latest episode of the magical sleuthing drama. Married to an aristocrat and living in a stately home, Bob's character looks to be having a good time until an expensive painting goes missing during a school visit to their home. Catching wind of the story and the promised reward, reporter Maddy tricks Jonathan into accompanying her to the scene of the crime.

It takes our magician a mere rabbit's whisker of time to work out the mystery, but a grudge against the said critic prevents him from sharing his knowledge. This, and her suppressed lust for Mr Creek, turn Maddy into a maddened moose on heat. Will she get her reward or her man?
Andrew Duncan talks to Alan Davies on page 14.

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.
