Episode 1/6
Six-part comedy series that charts the fortunes of former chat show host Alan Partridge. Starring Steve Coogan.
While presenting a daily show on Radio Norwich, Partridge tries to revive his television career.
See today's choices.

I'm Alan Partridge
10.00pm BBC2 Lovely Steve Coogan: he never overstays his television welcome and, when he does appear, you can always expect quality. Here he revives Alan Partridge, previously of the spoof chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You, in a sort of comic documentary series.
Partridge is a Radio Norwich DJ and desperate for his TV show to be recommissioned. He has driving gloves and the clothes your father wears; he sings Killer Queen to himself; has a dry-skin problem; would vote Raving Tory and has absolutely no social graces: "I've been working like a Japanese prisoner of war," he quips, obliviously.
Partridge is the sort of man you'd cross the road to point at. Television needs him.

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.
