: Performance: Nona

LesDawson donned a stringy wig and voluminous black dress to play the title role in Roberto Cossa 's grim satire of post-Falklands Argentina. First shown in 199 f, it is repeated here as a tribute to the comedian, who died earlier this year.
Nona, "the old one", is the 100-year-old matriarch of a city family, whose gluttony reduces her kinfolk to beggary, prostitution and death. The role is traditionally played by a leading male comic.
Dawson chomped his way to an 181b weight-gain during the filming, but was glad of the opportunity to extend himself theatrically. "It's good that people can see me doing something other than a game show. There comes a point when you're not stretching yourself any more - hence my little excursion into the heavier theatre."

More Sex Please We 're British
"Everythingyou think you know about pornography is wrong, says Isabel Koprowski. "A tidal wave of misinformation on the subject has swamped us."
Koprowski, who has been managing editor of Forum and Penthouse, and who launched Women Only, a sex magazine catering forwomen, is a member of Feminists against
Censorship. In her film for Open Space she argues that there is a demand for pornography from women as well as men, that
Britain's obscenity laws are both unhealthy and sexist, and that legal reform would ease oppression and bring social benefits. Producer Mike MacCormack Series producer Giles Oakley

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

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.
