: The Victorian Kitchen

Breakfast
Victorian breakfasts were huge. Ruth Mott prepares a Mrs Beeton dish of baked mushrooms, using Harry Dodson 's specially grown mushrooms, garnished with watercress from the estate river, and adds bacon and eggs, kidneys, trout, muffins and piles of toast. But before breakfast can be started, the scullery maid faces an hour of hard labour cleaning out the range, lighting the fire, black leading the hobs and making cook's tea.

: Alexei Sayle's Stuff: 2: Westward H2O

A series of six programmes.

Dear Radio Times,
Being right-wing crypto fascists with fixed ideas and loud screeching voices, my husband Pip and I sat down to watch this week's Alexei Sayle's Stuff on BBC1 with Great Trepidation (our 14-year-old labrador). Imagine our delight when we realised that Mr Sayle had lost several stones and spent the entire show sitting behind a news desk reading hilarious government 'plans' for education and health services - keeping us in stitches for the entire half-hour. More of this please!
Mrs Wilhemina Rees-Mogg,
Dungeness,
Kent

ALEXEI SAYLE replies: Who gives a damn what you think!

Me and My Bike
The Suddabys took theirs on honeymoon. Chris and Rachel sold everything to take theirs around the world, and Mr and Mrs Pinkerton have so many they don't know what to do with them.
This film takes an affectionate look at a long-standing love affair with the bicycle. At 88, Charles Darvill goes camping with his. George still builds them even though his wife was tragically killed on one.
And John Woodburn rode his 800 miles from Land's End to John o'Groats in record-breaking time.

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.
