Dark side of the lake: page 6

Family strife: Danny (John Simm) and Emma (Emma Cunliffe) hit hard times in a new series of The Lakes
The Lakes
9.30pm BBC1
The second series of Jimmy McGovern's drama takes up exactly where the first left off, with Danny in a boat flipping a coin to decide his future. After the death of the three girls in the lake and his admission of gambling to his wife, he is feeling worthless. Elsewhere, the grimness continues. The teacher is in the process of splitting up from his adulterous wife and Danny's mother-in-law still clearly harbours feelings for her priest.
Some people may object to the nudity, sex and violence in this extraordinary, unsettling drama, but each incident is carefully placed and is there for very good reason.

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.
