Thurrock v Oldham Athletic Live coverage (kick-off 2.00) from Ship Lane of this first-round tie - a chance for non-league
Thurrock to achieve "giant-killer" status as they take on League One side Oldham Athletic. It's a tough task; Oldham have twice reached the semi-final stages while Thurrock qualified for the competition for the first time last season. But with victory today worth almost L100,000, the motivation should certainly be there. Presented by Ray Stubbs.
Commentary by Steve Wilson. The draw for the second round takes place after the game.

: North and South: 1/4

New series. Daniela Denby-Ashe leads the cast in this tale of passionate love across Victorian social divides, dramatised from Elizabeth Gaskell's novel.

Forced to leave their idyllic life in the south, Margaret Hale and her parents move to a northern town. There she meets mill owner John Thornton.
Labour of love: p18; Alison Graham on TV drama: p63

Perhaps the words "It's Grim Up" should precede the title of this dramatisation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel about a pampered young woman discovering her social conscience.
Spirited Margaret Hale (Daniela Denby-Ashe) is forced to move from her sun-dappled home in Hampshire, after her dad gives up his rural rectorship on a point of principle. It's a hideous transition. Margaret, with her soft southern ways, is thrust into a world where women pluck chickens in filthy streets that are shrouded in smoke (where does it come from?).
And then there are the people. Margaret is menaced by men with cloth caps and hairy chests, and is scandalised by the behaviour of handsome mill owner John Thornton (Richard Armitage), a man with a passion for fire prevention and Arkwright's spinning jenny.
She professes to despise him, but you can tell by the way Thornton looks at her that soon it'll be more than Margaret's bonnet that's quivering. However, with rumblings of trouble at t' mill, Thornton may soon have other things on his mind.
North and South is worth watching, if only for its great cast and a terrific turn
from Sinead Cusack (with a superb Yorkshire accent) as John Thornton's austere mother. But it remains to be seen whether even they can carry for another three episodes what these days seems a cliched and faintly patronising story. (Alison Graham TV editor)

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.
