: Ballykissangel: Changing Times!

The village is hotly divided over Quigley's plans for Ballykay.

(See today's choices)

Brendan and the badgers are up in arms this week when wide-boy Quigley decides to bulldoze a path through their midst. In a plot that's eerily similar to the "Coronation Street" Red Rec protest, Brendan muster support from some other locals to mount an anti-progress campaign. Quigley's not for shifting, however, despite demonstrating his rarely seen cutsie side when in the presence of his grandson. Father Peter looks in pain for much of this episode as he battles against his less-than-priestly feelings for Assumpta. She, too, is upset and is even contemplating leaving Ballykay. Peter goes further, though, in seeking advice from his old enemy Father Mac. Things are getting serious indeed.

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.
