: Full House

A live entertainment for Saturday, presenting a mixture of music, plays, poetry, prose, comedy, films, the visual arts -and a few surprises.
Introduced by Joe Melia with a little help from John Bird.
Among the main events:
Henry VIII's Missing Wife
There is no existing authenticated portrait of Catherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife.
Barbara Tate has recently painted a likeness of this little-known queen, which she will show in the Full House studio, with some of her other paintings.
Ravel's Septet
Harp, flute, clarinet and a string quartet combine in Maurice Ravel's Introduction and Allegro, played by Osian Ellis, Richard Adeney, Gervase De Peyer and The Gabrieli String Quartet.
Can Anyone Smell Gas? Linda Polan presents her own very personal one-woman show.
Take me, take me as I am
My face has been around
Maybe not pretty, but profound.
With wrinkles you get sensuality
So take me as I am, it's all me.
Written by Andrew Davies with music by Tony Hatch
Ted Walker lives in his native Sussex. He is not a regional writer, but the poems he introduces and reads tonight reflect a strong sense of place and the importance of roots.

10.0 Family
In the middle 60s bands like FAMILY were an 'underground' adolescent cult. Good musicianship, careful song-writing and a highly individual vocal style have made the group popular now with a very wide audience. FAMILY are:
Roger Chapman (vocals)
Tony Ashton (keyboards)
Jim Cregan (bass)
Rob Townsend (drums)
Charlie Whitney (guitar)

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.

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.
