: Inside Story: Fish Tales

The first of five new films in the documentary series meets the colourful characters of Billingsgate fish market in London's East End. A millionaire restaurant owner, a workaholic fish trader and a would-be rock 'n' roll star are among those wheeling and dealing at the crack of dawn.
See today's choices.

Inside Story
10.15pm BBC1
Billingsgate fish market may have moved to a modem building in London's Docklands, but it's still a place for duckers and divers, where the old ways hold strong. The documentary series returns with an entertaining film about the sharp-witted, rough-tongued cockneys who are at their most lively in the early hours.
Roger combines fish-trading with bookmaking at Romford dog track; Tony has made a million in the restaurant business and is tipped to become the man to modernise Billingsgate. Bobby is one of the porters who control everything that moves in and out of the market. He wants to preserve the closed shop that protects his livelihood.
Here is a picture of a world which many thought was long gone, where deal-making and personal abuse are a way of life.


Producer: Neil Grant
Executive Producer: Olivia Lichtenstein

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.
