Robert De Miro and Ben Stiller. Male nurse
Greg Focker wants to propose to his girlfriend Pam, but decides to ask the permission of her old-fashioned father, Jack, a former CIA agent.

A countdown of TV shows, personalities and genres that viewers adore/ despise according to taste. Reliably irksome favourites such as Gordon Ramsay and Britain's Most Haunted are well to the fore, but Jade Goody as a guilty viewing pleasure? Apparently so. See choice, page 50.
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.
