[Photo caption] Casualty: The staff are all smiles - unaware of the impending series-end plot developments

Pick of the Day: Casualty 8.40pm BBC1
It's hard to know where to start tonight, there's such an almighty pile-up of storylines. It's the first of a two-parter to end the run (Casualty returns in September) and the writers have thrown everything into the mixer. There are a couple of moments so daft that you may burst out laughing, but it makes for an excellently full-on episode.
For a start, Satan appears in the hospital car park. Sorry, not Satan; I mean Sean. I get those two mixed up. He is evil incarnate after all, and having blighted a number of lives by kidnapping his and Jess's children, abducting them to Saudi Arabia then turfing Jess out of her home, he strolls in with a merry quip as if nothing has happened, the swine.
Curtis (the paramedic we last saw getting a gun so he could confront gang boss Tony) spirals from bad to very much worse, ensuring his and Alice's wedding day goes about as badly as could be hoped. And there's not one but two major road accidents for the ED to deal with. Plus a chemical-attack rehearsal.
In the midst of all this Henry, the grumpy hospital boss, stalks around snapping at everyone like a bilious bulldog - always a joy. Oh, and Matt Di Angelo guest-stars as an unlucky groom-to-be. Yes, another one. (David Butcher)

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.
