Camberwick dream: page 10; Moment of the Week: page 59

Life on Mars 9.00pm BBC1
The second series has frequently had a bit of a woozy David Lynch feel, as if the avant-garde director had sneezed on the scripts. This episode is dark, odd and unsettling; it even feels a bit like Lynch's TV masterpiece Twin Peaks. Though I can't recall Lynch ever using Camberwick Green puppets in his work - there's a delightful opening as a representation of Sam emerges from the musical box in a special, very adult Life on Mars version of the much-loved children's TV programme.
It's all linked to Sam's 21st-century coma and is yet another manifestation of his nightmares. Sweaty and shivering, he's called back to work after a mother and daughter are kidnapped. Their disappearance is linked to a young man's conviction for the murder of a teenage girl.
Most of the story is told, from different viewpoints, in flashback. It's quite effective, but might leave you feeling decidedly strange. Maybe it's not just Sam who's in an altered state... (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.

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.
