: Six Nations Rugby

The fourth weekend of rugby internationals, presented by John Inverdale from Murrayfield and Craig Doyle from the Stadio Flaminio in Rome.
1.30 Scotland v Ireland Having been humbled on their home turf in a shock defeat by the Italians. the Scots face a stiff test of their resilience as they tackle an Irish side brimming with skill and confidence (kick-off 1.30). The
Irish will be riding high after their emphatic 43-13 victory over
England at Croke Park, and a win here will seal the Triple Crown and give them an outside chance to take the championship title.
Commentary comes from Andrew Cotter and Phillip Matthews. (5) (HD) Video Plus+ code for 1.00-3.30
(non PDC)
3.30 Italy v Wales The Welsh won't be relishing their visit to
Rome as they face an Italian side who'll be on a high after recording their first away victory in the competition, 37-17 against the Scots (kick-off 3.30). Last year, the Welsh could only manage an unconvincing 18-18 draw against the Azzuri on home turf, and having already lost away to
Scotland earlier this year, could well be pushed all the way by an Italian side growing in confidence. Commentary by Nick Mullins and Jonathan Davies.

: Casualty: Sweet Charity

In an episode addressing mental health issues, Megan returns to help her grandchild. Nathan fumes when staff members, with help from a reluctant Angus Deayton, get into the spirit of Comic Relief.
Writers Richard Curtis and Gary Parker ; Producer Chris Lovett
Director Jill Robertson [web address removed] Funny bones: page 17

DRAMA Casualty 8.50pm BBC1
Richard Curtis co-wrote this heavily Comic Relief-themed episode, so you can expect a bit more lesson-learning than normal, particularly right at the end, when staff are given a few home truths about the reasons behind this week's funfest. Just about everyone in the hospital is fundraising, despite the vocal misgivings of tedious, lunk-headed boss Nathan. Brownies for a pound, sponsored sleep-outs - you name it, all money-earning ideas are here.
As is Brenda Fricker, making a welcome return to the wards after an 18-year-absence. She adds a bit of class to the proceedings and there's an unexpectedly touching scene where she soothes the distressed brow of her troubled, mentally ill grandson.
Watch out, too, for Angus Deayton, playing himself as a grumpy comic who's blackmailed into MC-ing the hospital's slave auction. Very silly. (Alison Graham, TV editor)

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.
