: Gavin & Stacey

3/6. The couple announce their engagement.

Gavin & Stacey 9.00pm BBC3
Ruth Jones and James Corden's superb new comedy keeps it nice and simple in its third episode. Gavin's mum throws the titular young lovers (Mathew Horne and Joanna Page) an engagement party; Stacey's family drive over from Wales for it; mild chaos ensues as the families meet. That's it. Complex plots aren't required when your script and cast are this good.
Rob Brydon owns this episode as Stacey's lovably inept Uncle Bryn, who bristles at visiting Essex ("That's tantamount to London!") until he realises it's a chance to try his new satnav - but Alison Steadman runs him close as Gavin's mum, absolutely nailing the waff linq, flapping hysteria of a home-counties hen trying to keep up appearances.
For rookie writers, Jones and Corden are astonishingly assured. This is a delightfully warm, humble work full of minor magic moments. (Jack Seale)

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
