A series of romantic feature films
Today:
Beyond the Blue Horizon starring
DOROTHY LAMOUR with RICHARD DENNING
JACK HALEY
PATRICIA MORISON
WALTER ABEL
Screenplay by FRANK BUTLER
Directed by Alfred Santell
The newspapers are full of the imminent arrival in San Francisco of Tama, a girl from the jungle who has become heiress to a fortune through the deaths of her well-known socialite parents. She grew up in the jungle with only a tiger and a prankish chimpanzee for friends, and so is ill-equipped to cope with the human sharks-publicity agents, reporters, and so on-who hound her when she arrives in America. But love is the same anywhere, and Jakra, a lion-wrestler, soon finds he is romantically involved with the beautiful jungle princess.

The young couple fall in love-but they have only two days together ... On this slight plot Vincente Minnelli creates an unexpectedly brilliant film.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
