Timothy Spall's Big Break: page

My Big Break
Name: Timothy Spall Age: 50 First Big Break: The Brylcreem Boys
"Contrary to popular belief my big break wasn't as Barry in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet! I did a show just before I left drama school called The Brylcreem Boys. It was my first proper TV part, about RAF pilots from the war who'd been on too many bombing raids and had gone nuts and were in an asylum. They re-enacted bombing operations in their ward - it was funny and bloody difficult, because these guys had all been through it. The director was Roger Bamford, and when they were having difficulty trying to find the right actor to play Barry he remembered me and called me in."
Timothy Spall is in Oliver Twist (8.00pm BBC1)

Drama: Oliver Twist 8.00pm BBC1
For such a young lad, unfortunate urchin Oliver Twist has an awful lot of enemies. In the second part of Sarah Phelps's dramatisation, Oliver (William Miller) has seen his one chance of happiness snatched after he's abducted from his comfortable new home by wicked Bill Sikes (a creepily malevolent turn from Tom Hardy).
But it's not just the ragged underworld that has it in for Oliver - the well-dressed and charming Monks (Julian Rhind-Tutt) also has his reasons for wishing the boy harm. We can only hope that Oliver's only friend, Nancy (Sophie Okonedo), will help him in his hour of need.
Oliver Twist's remaining 30-minute episodes run nightly until the weekend.
(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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
