Comedy Quiz
QI 10.00pm BBC2 The initials stand for "quite interesting". If that seems like a lame title, bear in mind that Never Mind the Buzzcocks is a dud name, too, but that hasn't stopped it running to umpteen series. The idea here is to put five of the wittiest people around in a studio, get them trading anecdotes, quotes and obscure historical trivia, and wrap it up in a feather-light quiz format with Stephen Fry in charge.
The result is very funny indeed, though cynics may find the Groucho Club chumminess of it a bit cosy. But with Alan Davies, Danny Baker, Hugh Laurie and John Sessions as panellists - or as Fry calls them: "employees" - you can't go far wrong. There are some nice twists, too. If a panellist comes up with a predictable joke, a klaxon sounds and he loses points. There's also a debunking theme, so we learn that ships' captains can't marry passengers and Sweden doesn't have the highest suicide rate in the world. It's Lithuania, apparently. DB

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.
