Moment of the Week: page 63; The Inside Story: page 64 What Tamsin Greig's watching: page 161

Comedy of the Week: Love Soup 9.00pm BBC1
You're going to have to cast your minds back to 2005 to remember the first series of Love Soup, David (One Foot in the Grave) Renwick's quirky, slightly surreal and utterly charming story of a love that never happened. (It was produced by Verity Lambert, to whom the new series is dedicated, as she died just after completing work on it.)
Those of us who adored Love Soup back then - there weren't many, but we're out and we're proud - have had to wait a long time. But if Renwick hadn't written a second series, I'd have camped outside his house clutching a big sign saying, "We want more Love Soup" until he capitulated.
I know it won't be to everyone's taste, but I love it. Tamsin Greig returns (hurray) as gentle, good-hearted, eternally hopeful Alice, who tries to do the right thing, but whose actions are always misread. It's hugely funny - the scene where she learns to drive at knifepoint is wonderful-and peppered with insights about sex, love and happiness. A divine, unmissable treat. (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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
