Red Dwarf VIII
9.00pm BBC2 Smegheads rejoice! Rimmer et al are back for more outrageous space oddities. Shot as a mixture of film and studio-audience performance, the eighth series follows on from an earlier run of repeats that will make the contrast very interesting viewing indeed.
No tapes were available and information was pretty scarce, but then that's all the better to get you salivating. However we know that in the first of a two-parter, Kryten's self-repairing system - the nanobots - have re-created the shrunken mining ship Red Dwarf with all the old crew on board, including Norman Lovett as the phlegmatic Holly, and Rimmer without his H logo. Now what could that mean?

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.
