DRAMA Robin Hood 7.20pm BBC1
The Sheriff of Nottingham (Keith Allen) is yet again in a bad mood. But he's a man who knows exactly what will put a smile back on his face. Not a glass of claret or a good cigar. Oh no. "Find me somebody to hang!" he demands of his henchman Sir Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage).
The sheriff is chewing the carpets of Nottingham castle because a top-level meeting with all of his Black Knights, gathered for a party and to declare, in writing, their allegiance to Prince John, is going badly awry. Little Robin Hood (Jonas Armstrong) is determined to wreak havoc, but first he has to drop his beloved Marian a note, just in case he doesn't make it. It's breathless and fun, with guest star Denis Lawson very sinister indeed as the charming and ruthless Sheriff of Winchester. (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.

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.
