: Chicken Run

Impressive animated comedy adventure, with the voices of Julia Sawalha ,
Jane Horrocks , Miranda Richardson and Mel Gibson. A clutch of hens, led by head chick Ginger , suffers life on a grim 50s egg farm. When the avaricious owners decide to move into the meat-pie business, the chickens fear the worst, and with the help of American rooster, Rocky, the birds start to plan a prisoner-of-war-style escape.

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.
