: The Worst Week of My Life

3/7. Wednesday. Howard prepares a celebratory CBE meal for Dick, but then has a visit from Uncle Fraser.
Writers/Directors/Producers Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni Alison Graham 's review of the year: page 37

The Worst Week of My Life 9.30pm BBC1
Hapless Howard (Ben Miller) is on the run from the police - without his trousers - after the unfortunate misunderstanding at the end of last week's episode. Just as things seem to be sorting themselves out, Howard once again grabs that metaphorical spade and starts digging himself into an even deeper hole.
Still, there could be a happy outcome, as it seems the incident has put Howard on a more cordial footing with his icy father-in-law, Dick (Geoffrey Whitehead). But fear not, fans of this wonderful comedy of embarrassment: things are soon set to get considerably worse for Howard when he offers to host a celebratory barbecue in honour of Dick being awarded a CBE.
Throw in the arrival of closeted gay uncle Fraser (Ronald Pickup) and his "travelling companion" Gerard, and the stage is set for yet more watch-through-your-fingers mishaps. AG Alison Graham's review of the year: page 37

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.
