: Fantasy Rooms

Another chance to see the series, first shown last year, in which Changing Rooms star Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is challenged to make more decorating dreams come true. Tonight the interior designer is in heaven because he has been challenged to create a bedroom retreat that is reminiscent of paradise. Apart from a few fluffy clouds and floating angels, however, he is not given many clues about the appearance of such a pleasant location. In search of divine inspiration, he wings his way to a New Age book shop, then pays a visit to Brighton Pavilion and finally contemplates the beauty of Winchester Cathedral.

Comedian, actress, screenwriter and novelist Meera Syal joins presenter Paul Merton in this repeated edition of the series that debates whether to consign celebrities' pet hates into Orwellian oblivion. Goodness Gracious Me star Syal, author of the screenplay for Bhaji on the Beach and the novels Anita and Me and Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee, targets cockroaches, youth hostels and the skin that forms on top of rice pudding as truly loathsome objects that are more than worthy of banishment to Room 101.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
