: Comic Roots: Kenneth Williams

A tribute to Kenneth Williams who died last month. Architecture, poetry, art and music were the formative influences on the aesthete known to millions as Kenneth Williams: the slum architecture of St Pancras where he grew up; the poetry of his Gran's fruity anecdotes and the musical knees-up of 'The Boot'. He rose to heights of erudition, but never moved far from his humble roots. Though his classic radio shows with Kenneth Horne and Tony Hancock and films with the 'Carry On' team will live on, his absence from TV panel games and chat shows will be sadly missed. (R)

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about our lives - now.
Separate Tables with John Pitman
It's February in Eastbourne - a cruel month. Some hotel residents on Grand Parade are being shunted upstairs to new rooms they do not really like. Seaside hotels now chase the conference trade. Permanent residents, once needed out of season, are no longer so welcome. Mrs Sybil Bloom, 86, is unhappy with her move. So is Mrs Muriel 6 McNab, 85. But the two i widows have little choice.
They move up or they move out, as their hotel gets a E20 million face-lift.
Mrs McNab has lived at the Burlington for 17 years and wants to stay. So does
Mrs Bloom , 'Not many hotels take residents these days, so where would I go?'
Only a few years ago there were more than 100 residents on Grand Parade. Now there arejust30 - a dauntless breed of touching, frail, cheerful people, who simply wish to see out their days in peace on this select seafront strip.

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.
