What was the background to The Good Life's memorably monstrous social-climber Margo Leadbetter?This fictional biography combines clips from the classic 1970s sitcom with archive footage, an interview with Margo's best friend (played by Rita Tushingham), and cameos from Richard and Judy, Max Clifford, Raj Persaud and Judith Chalmers. Director Margy Kinmonth; Producer Helen Jerome

COMEDY Life beyond the Box:
MargO 9.00pm BBC2
The Good Life's Margo Leadbetter is possibly the most unashamed snob in TV history. Life beyond the Box gives us a fuller picture of Margo (Penelope Keith, who does not take part here) with a fictional biography using clips from The Good Life, interviews from people in Margo's life, and new footage. The programme charts her life since her 1970s heyday, through politics, entertainment and a quiz-show scandal. AG

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.
