EastEnders 7.30pm BBC1
What on earth did EastEnders do before the advent of the lovely Alfie (Shane Richie)? He's kind-hearted, cheerful, thoughtful and never - not yet, anyway - shows any inclination to beat anyone to a pulp (always a big bonus in a soap that could occasionally be mistaken for Gangs of New York). In all, he's a very welcome addition to the Albert Square tapestry.
Tonight, with his usual perspicacity, Alfie realises that something is badly wrong with Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) after last night's traumatic events. Naturally she's putting on a brave face, but Alfie knows that she's badly hurt. Thus he announces a little surprise that will cheer her up no end. But before she takes Alfie up on his offer, Kat has to clear the air with her dreary ex-lover, Dr Trueman. (Alison Graham)

: The Conman, His Lover and the Prime Minister's Wife

Towards the end of 2002, allegations arose that businessman Peter Foster - then facing an extradition case - had been involved in financial dealings with Cherie Blair, a friend of Foster's lover Carole Caplin. This intimate portrait of the relationship between Caplin and Foster asks whether Foster's feelings for Caplin were genuine or whether she was cynically targeted by a conman keen to get close to those in power.

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.
