: A Slice of Life - the Story of the Soaps

1/2. To coincide with the 20th anniversary of EastEnders and the 45th year of Coronation Street, Martin Kemp presents a full-throttle history of British soap opera, which now ranks as one of the nation's most indulged TV genres. Offering insight are actors William Roache , Dean Sullivan , Claire Sweeney , Brian Capron and Tom Watt , producers Phil Redmond , Verity Lambert and Tony Wood , and former scriptwriter Andrew Collins. This first part recalls the influence of Look Back in Anger and A Taste of Honey on the early soaps, and ITV's initial domination of the format.

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.
