Terry (Gavin Richards) is the pain in Spain as far as Irene (Roberta Taylor) Is concerned in EastEnders
8.00pm BBC1
When soaps pack their bags to go on holiday, it can mean only one thing - there's big trouble ahead. And sure enough, there's trouble in buckets and spades this week with three EastEnders Spanish specials - including tonight's extended episode - featuring three of the soap's most established couples: Roy and Pat, Frank and Peggy, and Terry and Irene. The jaunt proves to be a frequently traumatic escape from the wall-to-wall misery of life back home in Albert Square as all three relationships undergo some dramatic and occasionally irrevocable transformations. This is all a great treat for EastEnders fans and these are truly marvellous scripts from old hand Tony Jordan, who manages to combine lovely comic moments with outbursts of great drama and passion.

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.
