: Q.E.D.

The Riddle of Sleep
Narrated by Anthony Clare
Do you have trouble getting to sleep at night? Spare a thought for Leslie Gamble. He claims he hasn't slept for 11 years.
On the other hand
Joyce Hannon always feels incredibly tired. Many times a day she simply falls asleep whatever she happens to be doing. Joyce has narcolepsy - a quarter of a million Americans have it - but the odds are you won't have heard of it, because the world of sleep is shrouded in ignorance. Yet it's a world in which we spend a third of our lives.

concludes BBC2's series of comedies from writer-director Mel Brooks starring Mel Brooks Marty Feldman Dom De Luise
Film director Mel Funn emerges from oblivion with an unspeakably brilliant idea to save Big Picture Studios from a takeover: a lavish silent movie starring Hollywood's leading lights. But the devious businessmen at Engulf and Devour have other plans.... Can Funn make a comeback? Will the studio be rescued? Is slapstick dead? Mel Brooks gives the answers and proves a man of surprisingly few words in this hilarious romp through the conventions of silent cinema. and BURT REYNOLDS , JAMES CAAN UZA MINNELLI , ANNE BANCROFT

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.
