: Cambridge Spies

The explosion of the Soviet's first atomic bomb takes the world by surprise in the fourth and final part of the story

Cambridge Spies 9.00pm BBC2
Any scene without the terrific Tom Hollander as dissolute spy Guy Burgess simply marks time until he re-appears, and unfortunately in the final episode of Peter Moffat's drama, he isn't on screen nearly enough. Still, there's a priceless sequence where a drunken Burgess gatecrashes a Kim Philby dinner party and regales the appalled guests with a graphic account of a failed sexual encounter in a gents' toilets.
But that's what you get for lending Burgess your spare room, an act of "hospitality" that Philby (Toby Stephens) extends to his friend and fellow traitor when they both move to Washington to take up new British government posts. Philby has actually replaced another member of the spying quartet, Donald Maclean (Rupert Penry-Jones), who has been recalled to England. But the net is closing in. Both British and American intelligence bosses know that there is a mole at the very highest level, and Maclean is the man in the frame. He has to be spirited away to Moscow, fast. And Guy Burgess, whose louche behaviour has made him a liability to the Soviets, has to go with him. Anthony Blunt (the excellent Sam West), now deeply embedded within the British establishment at the highest of levels, has to say goodbye to his closest friend, Burgess. Here Hollander and West are so good you almost, almost feel sadness at their parting, particularly knowing that Burgess was to die in Moscow, drunk, lonely and homesick.

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.
