Drama: Casualty: 8.05pm BBC1
The first of two episodes from Holby City this week, with the A&E's new resuscitation section being put to the test when an animal rights protest has tragic consequences. First though, there's a whole series of patients, including a man who has obsessive-compulsive disorder as a result of worrying about his wife's battle with cancer. He's cut his arm, but is petrified of being infected by germs. If the man looks familiar it's because he's played by Ian Lavender, best known as that "stupid boy" Pike in Dad's Army; his long-suffering wife is played by Shirley Stelfox. Elsewhere, Duffy is interviewed by Max and Charlie for the post of Sister and is taken aback by the aggressive questioning of one of them. She learns the reason at the end of the episode. The story concludes tomorrow. (JR)

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.
