(Dexter Fletcher reappears in Hotel Babylon on Thursday at 9pm)

Drama: The Virgin Queen 9.00pm BBC1
Queen Elizabeth's court is alive with gossip and intrigue, thanks to cute Robert Dudley's overt and very public flirtations with Elizabeth, in the second episode of this compelling drama.
But Dudley is a married man with an ailing wife. She knows full well what her husband is up to, and cautions him about his behaviour. But she, and we, know that it is all going to end badly.
For her part, Elizabeth (Anne-Marie Duff) is becoming increasingly fed up at her advisers' attempts to marry her off to just about any crowned European head who'll have her: "It is England I married!" Good for you, your majesty. (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.
