PICK OF THE DAY DOCTOR WHO "A man of travel, that hath seen the world": it's a meeting of the minds when the Doc (David Tennant, right) visits the Bard

DRAMA Doctor Who 7.00pm BBC1
Strap yourselves in for one of the most sparkling and energetic episodes yet as the Doc and new sidekick Martha (Freema Agyeman) tumble into Shakespearean England.
They meet the Bard himself (played with impish charm by Dean Lennox Kelly from Shameless), a bit of a jack-the-lad in between all that writing. But a triumvirate of witches is determined to hijack his latest play - the oddly unfamiliar Love's Labour's Won - for their own twisted purposes. When the Doctor and Martha visit the Globe Theatre for a night's raucous entertainment, they become enmeshed in a race to stop these weird sisters from changing the course of history.
It's lovely stuff, thanks to a shimmering script by Gareth Roberts packed with clever references and in-jokes, along with breathtaking asides that will have you laughing out loud. And the final sequences in the Globe are thrilling. (Alison Graham, TV editor) Behind the scenes: page 8

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.
