: Rab C Nesbitt: Wild

Second in the six-part comedy series starring Gregor Fisher.
Rab acquires an allotment but his family and friends pour scorn on his new-found interest in gardening. See today's choices.
Written by Ian Pattison

Rab C Nesbrtt
9.30pm BBC2 More coarse comedy with the Govan anti-hero, who is becoming increasingly concerned about his age. It seems he has reached the stage when it's necessary to take up an interest so prepare to meet the mellow, pastoral Rab, contemplating bounteous nature - on his allotment. "Sitting there with a problem fish and a poxy bush, you've turned into a cabbage," says Jamesie. And he realises he is slowing down when he is bequeathed a pair of tartan slippers and a set of dominoes.
But what could be better to revitalise old Rab than the appearance of a rival for Mary. And he's offering an attractive future, for Frankie is a ned - a gangland hard man who has no scruples about getting what he wants.

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.
