: The Lost Steptoes

Say the phrase "you dirty old man" to fortysomethings and it immediately evokes a junkyard in Shepherds Bush, an ageing horse called Hercules, and two disreputable rag-and-bone men.
Steptoe and Son was devised by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson as a one-off Comedy Playhouse in 1962, but the series ran until 1974 with audiences peaking at around 20 million.
Earlier this year BBC2 screened four episodes of the classic comedy which had been " lost" for 20 years until they were found in the basement of writer Galton's house last year. Now a further eight episodes - not screened for many years - have been unearthed. In this first episode, Tea for Two, politics divide the household. With Harry H Corbett and Wilfrid Brambell.

The Media Response to Change in South Africa
As South Africa prepares to come to terms with the full implications of black majority rule, this film examines how television, radio and advertising have operated in the apartheid system of the censored past, during the liberal interlude of the present, and how they might adapt in the future. It also shows how changes in the media reflect changes in society at large. Director Adrian Pennink

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.
