UNDER PRESSURE Ros and Lucas oil the wheels of a dodgy government gas deal
PICK OF THE DAY Spooks 9.00 pm BBC1
DRAMA Imagine you are a spy, and you want to meet another spy for a clandestine chat. You would choose a greasy-spoon cafe or a grotty alleyway, somewhere inconspicuous where you were unlikely to be spotted by your enemies.
You wouldn't choose a huge deserted bandstand in a public park, or the steps of the Albert Memorial in London, would you? That would be like carrying a large placard with the words "Hello! We are spies!" daubed on it in orange paint. Yet Spooks' personnel insist upon having their supposedly secret get-togethers in such public places. But they aren't your usual spies; Spooks agents dress in black leather and walk in slow motion and they never, ever smile. Not that there's much to laugh about. Britain's energy supply is in crisis and power cuts are looming after a huge fire at the country's biggest gas processing plant.
The government wants to cut a deal with a grubby little Russian satellite country with a very bad human rights record. It's up to the Spooks to ensure everything goes smoothly. The story is told with Spooks' trademark brio and yes, it's probably all quite preposterous. But by heck, it's good fun. AG

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.
