: Empathy

New supernatural drama about ex-con Jimmy Collins, who begins to experience visions from inside the minds of those he comes into physical contact with. Brushing past a man on a station platform, Jimmy glimpses an insight into a high-profile murder case. But convincing the police to believe his visions is not easy.

The Inside Story: page 50

THE INSIDE STORY "Jim Collins couldn't be more different from my last character on TV," says Stephen Moyer (right), who stars in Empathy (9.00pm BBC1). "He's a working-class ex-convict in a contemporary drama, whereas Mr Brazendale in Lilies was respectable middle-class in a period drama. I finished Lilies on the Friday in Liverpool and started on Empathy on the Sunday." Moyer is certainly in demand. "The day after I finished this, I flew to Australia to make a drama with Debra Messing from Will & Grace. After that I made a pilot for a series called True.

Empathy 9.00pm BBC1
You can tell summer is upon us when networks wheel out underpowered thrillers like Empathy- the tall tale of an ex-prisoner with psychic abilities - to fill empty Saturday nights.
The premise is very similar to the Stephen King novel The Dead Zone (made into an excellent film with Christopher Walken). But star Stephen Moyer is no Walken, and the story has none of The Dead Zone's energy. Which is all a bit of a shame, as television is sadly short of top-notch supernatural dramas, and this could have been so much better if only it had avoided cliche. Still, devotees of nonsense will enjoy being a few steps ahead of the plot as Moyer discovers he can see dead people and can even solve murders just by shaking people by the hand. Which comes in very useful when police investigate the apparent serial killings of two young women. 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.

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.
