: Dragons' Den

1/6. A bunch of brave innovators try to persuade five multimillionaires to invest in their ideas, but are they more likely to get a scorching when they pitch their products in the Den?

PICK OF THE DAY DRAGONS' DEN The fire-breathers prepare to reduce more poorly thought-out business plans to toast
Dragons' Den 8.00pm BBC2
ITV now has a watery imitation of Dragons' Den where Richard Madeley says things like "Well done, baby" to contestants if they manage to talk a panel of millionaires out of cash. Hard to imagine that kind of language here: as series four of the addictive business show starts, the Dragons are the same grouchy gang of bullies we've grown to love, or at least respect.
Peter Jones still glares at the wannabes who pitch for investment money as if they'd just spat at his mum; Duncan Bannatyne looks like he wants to ask them outside to settle it like men; Deborah Meaden purses her lips like a disappointed schoolmarm; and the Australian one with the floppy fringe tries to keep up. Star of the show, though, is Theo Paphitis: not since Sean Connery has one left eyebrow said so much without words. David Butcher Den of equity: page 14

: Party Animals

2/8. A jealous Sophie spreads malicious gossip about Scott when he starts to get close to Ashika, while George Morgan fails to see the funny side after a selection of exaggerated tales concerning his upbringing start to circulate.

Party Animals 9.00pm BBC2
The everyday story of political folk and their love lives continues with lobbyist Scott reeling from the traumatic events of last week, while Ashika turns on the froideur with her MP lover James: it's a sulk that even a pot of heather honey can't soften. Meanwhile, junior minister Jo (a deliciously dry performance from Raquel Cassidy) has a freedom-of-speech row over a film that's being shot in her constituency that features sex at a mosque.
The drama is still sharp, convincing and full of cheeky details: new-Tory James's office is decorated with a semi-ironic print of Margaret Thatcher; his old-Tory enemy George says "racialist" when he means racist; and, best of all, Labour MP Jo refers in passing to "Clem" keeping her awake with his teething: of course a Labour minister would name a child after Clement Attlee!

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.
