DRAMA Robin Hood 6.55pm BBC1
The Saracen version of Charlie's Angels drops by Sherwood Forest this week in a plot more than usually packed with absurdities. A mysterious visitor from the East is staying at the castle and has left his mysterious wagon in the forest; a mysterious former crusader is suffering from a mysterious mental affliction; then an all-girl gang of Saracen assassins in turquoise catsuits materialises, mysteriously, in the forest.
They're supposed to be scary martial arts demons - we know this because their legs make swish-whizz noises when they do needless gymnastics - but mostly they look about as threatening as Pan's People prancing about to Rivers of Babylon. From there, a plot involving kebabs, tear gas and acupuncture builds to a bloodless climax and, as ever, Keith Allen very nearly redeems the whole thing.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
