: Murder Most Horrid: Confessions of a Murderer

Continuing a series of murder-mystery spoofs starring Dawn French.

Harriet Snellgrove dreams of being arrested. But will she resort to murder in a bid to live out her fantasy?
See today's choices.
(Digital widescreen)

Murder Most Horrid 9.00pm BBC2
Meet Harriet Snellgrove, Dawn French's latest incarnation, a woman who calls her pets by the names of TV detectives and whose doorbell plays the Z Cars theme tune. She's "bonkers" according to the long-suffering police sergeant who regularly hears her confessing to crimes that she never committed. "Yes, I am Lord Lucan," says Harriet. No wonder they ignore her story about the missing bank manager.
Writers Ian Hislop and Nick Newman have enormous fun with TV police cliches like the old-style copper versus the university-educated new boss. Metaphorically challenged, the latter can't quite get to grips with the argot and has to be given a helpful nudge now and again ("It's 'Shut it', not 'Close it', sir"). Watch out for a nice little cameo by Graeme Garden as the entire staff of the Nutley Chronicle.

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.
