TV Insider: Manners maketh tan
Actress Sarah Manners (right) is relieved to be talking to us about her new role in Casualty (8.10pm BBC1). The questions she's been fielding recently all relate to a Sky 1 series she's starring in called Mile High. As the title suggests, it's about the raunchy antics of an airline cabin crew and starts next week. "You can imagine what all the questions have been about," she admits with a resigned laugh, "and the answer was no every time." Back down to earth, Manners makes her first appearance in Casualty tonight as a flighty new receptionist, a role she also played in the daytime BBC1 series Doctors. "She's a gossip, very nosy and likely to be a bit naughty," she says. The actress's own fake tan proved perfect for the part. "My character Bex is an ex-model who still likes to look good. I'm very pasty, so I use tanning lotion all year around. I was still using it when we were in Majorca filming Mile High. How sad is that?"

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.
