: The Royle Family

It's Antony's 18th birthday, and the family plan to do him proud. With all of them crammed into the sitting room with friends and neighbours, the scene is set for a memorable celebration. Last in the series.
(Postponed from 21 October)
Repeated next Saturday on BBC2 (S)

The tension and teasing of family life may be put to one side in the final instalment of this banal, vulgar and very funny sitcom. It seems there is more than telly and chat on the agenda as son and household slave Antony (Ralf Little) celebrates his 18th birthday. His coming-of-age promises a crowd scene in what could be an epic episode of the series in which normally next-to-nothing happens. We can confidently expect more subtle writing and enjoyable performances, especially from the outstanding Sue Johnston and Ricky Tomlinson as Barbara and Jim. This episode, originally scheduled to be shown last week, now looks like the logical culmination to a series that has successfully transferred to BBC1. There is no confirmation yet of a future series, but a Christmas special is in the pipeline. GE

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.
