: The Wrong Trousers

Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins missed out this year. But a plasticine cast of creatures kept the British film flag flying when The Wrong Trousers took the only British Oscar at last month's award ceremony. Nick Park's animation, which won the Radio Times Readers' Choice Award at the recent Indie presentations, features amiable inventor Wallace and his dog Gromit, the characters featured in the highly acclaimed Grand Day Out.

In this story the happy homelife of number 62 West Wallaby Street is threatened when a villainous penguin rents out the spare room.
Originally shown at Christmas, The Wrong Trousers was specially commissioned by BBC2 from Aardman Animations.

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.
