DRAMA OF THE WEEK Bleak House 8.00pm BBC1

We're halfway through this mesmerising serial and it shows no sign of letting up. Tonight, there's a sense of the narrative turning a corner. One astonishing scene towards the end (I won't divulge details) is likely to leave the entire viewing audience shattered and weepy - it certainly left me an emotional wreck.
Before that, there's more nastiness from that prowling wolf Tulkinghorn, so deliciously brought to life by Charles Dance. He gets hold of something he has waited a long time for, but that doesn't stop him sharpening his claws.
Meanwhile, Phil Davis continues to have a ball as the repulsive "Shake me up, Judy" Smallweed, who tonight picks over the remains of Krook's little empire, looking for loot.
As ever, each frame is composed to perfection, each face lit like an oil painting, and the acting is out of this world. You might want to take the phone off the hook. David Butcher Phil Davis's big break: page 44 Your weekly catch-up: page 48.

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.

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.
