    User /u/Dreamxtreme on Reddit posted this TV Guide Listing for The End from back in 1988

    Find it interesting that Norman Lovett isn’t considered as “starring” … probably the reason the bloke has been a grumpy arse all these years.

    It’s interesting what they decided to spoil and what they decided not to spoil in this listing. Concealing the existence of The Cat – “Danny John-Jules as ?” – but not concealing the main twist of the story, that all but 1 of the crew die.

    At least they keep it ambiguous about whether Lister or Rimmer is the one to survive.

    Yeah I was surprised by them spoiling the crew death too. Especially as, if memory serves, wasn’t it advertised in trailers without giving that away?

    I had wondered why he’d got it from, makes sense he grabbed it from Doug.

    But then User /u/Dreamxtreme said something that made me laugh…

    Strange that they listed the swimming certificates in there despite their nonappearance in The End.

    The swimming certificates joke appears for the first time in Me2, doesn’t it? A nice bonus for RT readers that that finally pays off when they see the finale.

    Programme creators submitted their own listings to Radio Times and often had fun with it. Like the Young Ones summaries that tended to have nothing to do with the episodes.

    Sick

    A psychological British war film set in the Sahara desert. Hugh Freganotte’s sombre Western is diversely episodic but the locations admirably sustain the journey. Like an old favourite shoe: not brilliant but sturdy. Pauline Melville makes a splendid quiche.

    That’s excellent, never seen that before!

    I presume the others are all on Genome…?
