: Airport

Return of the series that goes behind the scenes at London's Heathrow Airport. In the first of ten programmes, Aeroflot supervisor Jeremy Spake's patience is tested by a motorway tailback. See today's choices.
Producer Toni Williamson ; Series producer Edwina Vardey
Jeremy Spake 's Questionnaire: page 23

Fasten your seatbelts... everyone's preparing for some more departures at the Airport
8.55pm BBC1
Viewers who have sympathised as Aeroflot flight supervisor Jeremy Spake endures near-daily disasters in previous series of the soap-doc will be delighted to hear that he's back, stoical as ever. Life at Heathrow is one long discovery - human nature astounds you some days, he says.
This third series looks set to confirm his view. There's a clutch of unlikely incidents in this opening instalment and some new faces. Armed policewoman Alison is as cool as you would hope for in someone whose business is dealing with incidents involving weapons or explosives. Air traffic controller Phil is another whose work is full of stress, as he tries to find a slot for the Prime Minister's plane.
It's almost light relief, then, to follow animal welfare officer Stuart King intercepting two canaries brought from Japan in hand luggage. You can read Jeremy Spake's Questionnaire on page 23.

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.
