Torchwood: Children of Earth 9.00pm BBC3
DRAMA "What could we offer and get away with?" It's Day Four and the perfidious PM tries haggling with the 456, who require ten per cent of Earth's youth. This powerful scene by writer John Fay touches all sorts of buttons with viewers: our distrust of politicians and primal urge to protect our children. Torchwood also rises above formula sci-fi by giving so many decent, diverse roles to women (eight here) and daring to depict the heroes as two men in love. Gareth David-Lloyd and John Barrowman (above) pull out all the stops for their heart-rending adieu. (Patrick Mulkern)
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.
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.
