: He's Not the Messiah, He's a Very Naughty Boy

Comedian Sanjeev Bhaskar (The Kumars at No 42) celebrates Monty Python's Life of Brian, which was released in Britain 30 years ago last month and regularly scores high among the best of all comedy films. Directed by Terry Jones, the clever, anarchic and blasphemous religious satire stars Graham Chapman (1941-89) as a man called Brian who is mistaken for Christ. Armed with anecdotes and fantastic recollections are surviving Monty Python members Terry Jones, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam, with further input by producer John Goldstone, and Carol Cleveland, who discusses acting with Spike Milligan in his cameo role.

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.
