New series. 1/6. As the title suggests, Radio 2 takes the heat of Heat magazine and cranks it up in this panel show in which Claudia Winkleman challenges famous guests to provide catty, clever and potentially funny comments regarding topical issues and gossip. Competing for Claudia's prize of funniest gossipmonger are Robin Ince and Dom Joly.
3/4. Another chance to hear a 2008 sitcom starring dry and droll Miranda Hart as a woman who uses her inheritance cash to buy a joke shop. With Patricia Hodge as Miranda's bothered mother. In today's episode Gary chooses Stevie over Miranda as his one-night-only pretend wife.
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.
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.
