The second time around, will Billy and Honey's wedding be the perfect day they're hoping for? Writer Annie Wood Cast page 23 Repeated at 10pm on BBC3
[web address removed]

SOAP EastEnders 8.00pm BBC1
Albert Square has witnessed some truly fantastic weddings over the years. Remember Kat and Alfie's snow-sprinkled celebration? Or Grant's appalling singing of You'll Never Walk Alone to Sharon at their reception? And who can ever forget Pat and Frank's stomach-churning jellied eels and pearly kings extravaganza?
Tonight, it's Billy and Honey's second attempt to get hitched, but it looks like being a memorable day for all the wrong reasons. It certainly gets off to a bad start, with Billy waking up in a furniture warehouse wearing only his boxer shorts. But it gets worse, descending into increasing farce involving a suspected flasher, a couple of punch-ups, police cells, a faulty bathroom door, an old sack and a pair of wellies. Don't ask.

: Blondie - One Way or Another

The absorbing story of New York's most successful and enduring female-fronted band, from their beginnings at punk club CBGBs in 1974 to their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. Includes exclusive footage from their recent UK tour plus in-depth interviews with current and ex-band members, and friends including Iggy Pop and Tommy Ramone. Mark Radcliffe narrates.

Music documentary 10.35pm BBC1
For the legions of Blondie fans this is a real honey of a documentary, featuring interviews with all the band members and with musical luminaries such as Chris Frantz of Talking Heads, and Iggy Pop, as well as enough archive footage to give an old punk the CBGB's.
It's both a fantastic snapshot of a particular period and a classic rock 'n' roll tale. Some myths are laid to rest, such as why Debbie Harry only dyed half her hair blonde (not, as was supposed, to make a statement about the two sides of her personality but because she couldn't reach the back), and there are some great quotes - such as Iggy's description of Debbie's performance as being like "Barbarella on speed". But when you listen to some of Blondie's horribly out-of-tune early demos (such as the unrecognisable one for Heart of Glass), you'll be astounded they got where they did. JR

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.
