: Jack Dee Live at the Apollo

2/6. Fast-talking Irish comic Dara O'Briain joins the sharp-suited deadpan maestro in a set taking in know-it-all doctors and a koala bear posing as a phone-sex operator. With strong language.

Comedy of the Week: Jack Dee Live at the Apollo 10.35pm BBC1
Jack Dee is on fine form once more, celebrating London's successful bid for the 2012 Olympics - "At last Stratford East will get that desperately needed velodrome" - making nasty comments about TV sports presenter Sue Barker and imitating a camp shot-putter.
But he's at his best as he mauls the British obsession with DIY, notably our insistence on front porches and the perils of asking questions of a certain store's clueless staff.
Guest Dara O'Briain keeps up the pace with his rapid-fire delivery. He's a treasure trove of mad meanderings: his musings about possible terrorist attacks on a model railway museum are as surreal as they are funny, and a rambling dissection of the Lord's Prayer, noting the probable prevalence of trespassers in biblical times, is a polished comedy gem. (Alison Graham)

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.
