A reappraisal of one of British television's most celebrated dramas: Boys from the Blackstuff. First shown in 1982, the series was a remarkable hit and its catchphrases and characters caught the mood of the nation at a time of high unemployment and social unrest, changing for ever the careers of writer Alan Bleasdale and producer
Michael Wearing as well as establishing actors
Bernard Hill , Julie Walters and Michael Angelis in the public mind. Alan Bleasdale and Michael Wearing , with Lez Cookeand Annie Harrison-Baxter, re-examine the impact and legacy of the series. Producers Martin Smith and Fiona McLean

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.

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.
