I starring Matt Dillon
Hector Elizondo
Summer 1963: Jeffrey Willis is having the time of his young life.
Graduation is over and it's months before college starts. He's young, handsome and got his first job working at a swanky
Long Island beach club - a far cry from his crowded
Brooklyn home. Soon Jeffrey is seduced by the glamour and excitement. But life is not that easy.... This heart-warming film blends comedy and tears in its portrait of a young man's coming to terms with himself and his family.
(First showing on British television)

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.
