: EastEnders

Donna is terrified at the prospect of testifying for Little Mo.
Episode written by Deborah Cook
(For cast see Thursday)

EastEnders 8.00pm BBC1
It's a big week for the unfortunate, incarcerated Little Mo, whose appeal against her conviction and eight-year sentence for the attempted murder of her brutal husband Trevor is due to get under way. We don't actually find out her fate until Thursday, and we rather mysteriously don't see Little Mo at all this week.
Tonight's episode is largely taken up with Kat's increasingly desperate attempts to hang on to Donna, Trevor's similarly abused current wife. The poor woman has agreed to give evidence at the appeal hearing, but life chez Slater is becoming too much for her. She's so upset that she's turned, rather alarmingly, the same colour as her very pale jumper.
Still, who can blame Donna for becoming jumpy and stressed with that lot yelling all the time? Is there a soap family on earth who can communicate with each other without shouting? The Slaters always speak at megaphone level, and it seems that being effectively held prisoner amid this aural bombardment has taken its toll. To the family's horror, she vanishes - after they have received a phone call from the prison governor about Little Mo. The news is bad...

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.
