Pick of the Day: Robin Hood: Jonas Armstrong broods on the news that the series ends tonight

Drama: Robin Hood 6.50 pm BBC1
Robin (Jonas Armstrong) spends much of tonight's final episode in a sulk. "I'm sick of doing the right thing," says our soulful outlaw, before retiring to lean against a tree and gaze into the middle-distance.
In his absence, sidekick Much is left to carry the show and Sam Troughton plays a blinder. So much so, you wonder whether the drama isn't a bit better when Robin's off-screen - which can't be right, can it?
Meanwhile, Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage) shows his usual dash in a bizarre black leather kaftan. After the ups and downs of last week's episode it's a reasonably rollicking plot, and it comes to a head with a piece of cartoon archery that allows the sheriff - and the series - to end on a high.

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.
