: All about Me

A teenager's discovery that his mother has a degenerative illness opens up a series of Profound revelations in this one-off drama starring Nicholas Shaw, Phil Davis and Phoebe Nicholls. Writer Malcolm Campbell ; Producer
Hilary Durman ; Director Beryl Richards

Like many 19-year-olds, Elliott Conroy frets about who he is. Is he cool? Do girls think he's hot? Is he a geek for studying A-level chemistry? Is he just depressingly ordinary? But this teenage identity crisis becomes something major when he's told first that his mother has Parkinson's disease and then that his father isn't his biological parent after all. It's a lot for the youngster to take on board and it's not helped by his dad Tony refusing to talk to him about it. While he tries to come to terms with all this, an old friend of his mum starts hanging around and hinting he knows something about the identity of Elliott's real father. Nicholas Shaw is excellent as the confused teen who evolves into a self-assured, self-aware young man, and the dialogue strikes exactly the right note. It's a shame this compelling daytime drama may not get the audience it deserves. (Jane Rackham)

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.
