Round the Horne....Revisited

Brian Cooke's acclaimed play of the cult 60s radio show that sent up the British establishment.

COMEDY Round the Horne... Revisited 9.10pm BBC4
Round the Horne is undoubtedly the most quotable and quoted radio show in history. From "Hello, my name's Julian, this is my friend Sandy" to Rambling Syd Rumpo "nadgering his artefacts", it's an absolute feast for anyone who loves clever comedy, but who above all loves words.
Though fans might yearn to see the real thing with more archive clips than there are here, this straightforward film of the West End hit Round the Horne ... Revisited will do quite nicely. The actors are spookily accurate in their re-creations of the fabulous cast of Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick and Betty Marsden, though there are a few pointless forays into the outside world when the action leaves the stage.
And it will doubtless prompt any fan to think of their favourite ever line from the series. Mine's from the outrageously camp Julian, a practitioner of Bona Law, who tells Kenneth Horne in all innocence: "We've got a criminal practice that takes up most of our time." I don't know how they got away with it. (Alison Graham)

Pie In the Sky - Storyville

Documentary recounting the life of Brigid Berlin, daughter of the chairman of the Hearst Corporation, who achieved cult status after appearing nude in photographs and Andy Warhol films.
BBC Four

Storyville: Pie In the Sky

Brigid Berlin had a comfortable uptown upbringing that her mother hoped would end in her becoming a respectable socialite. Instead, she found cult recognition as an acolyte of Andy Warhol, appearing nude in many photographs and Warhol films. Vincent Fremont and Shelly Dunn Fremont's film shows how, at 60, the outrageous star's life now revolves around her twin obsessions of slimming and housekeeping.

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.
