: Bill Hicks - the Dark Poet

Phill Jupitus explores the formidable legacy of comedian Bill Hicks , who died from pancreatic cancer in 1994, aged 32. An in-your-face performer with a stridently anti-Establishment agenda, Hicks used stand-up to pinpoint the more hypocritical and corrupt aspects of government and society. Often fuelled by booze and drugs, he entertained an intense cult following both here and in his native America, where he kept the censors in full employment for much of his career.

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.
