: Frost over America

DAVID FROST talks to Tennessee Williams
- a rare television appearance by the American playwright.
Williams talks freely and intimately about his alcoholism, ' I'm just on myself now'; his philosophy, ' that romanticism is absolutely essential '; his God, ' I think he has odd moments of compassion'; and his loves, ' I don'want to be involved in some subject for scandal but I've covered the waterfront.'
He explains the relationship between his life and his writing and discusses excerpts from A Street-car Named Desire, Camino Real, and The Rose Tattoo performed by JESSICA TANDY, MAUREEN STAPLETON, and ELI WALLACH.
This programme is in sharp cpntrast to the first of the series with the Burtons. Frost extracts a very personal interview from Tennessee Williams. He is a soft, timid man : the power of his writing, in the excerpts we hear, contrasts remarkably with the reticence of their author.

: He Who Dares

Six true stories of people who survived against all odds 4: Doing a Perish
They call it the Never-Never-Land -because people never, never go there. Bob Ritchie certainly hadn'meant to go there. He lost his way while gliding and was forced to crash-land somewhere in the millions of acres of scorched desert and bush surrounding the small town of Alice Springs in central Australia.
He had no food and no water, in temperatures that soared as high as 140°F. An intensive air search had been mounted - but 50 miles away. And after two days even that would be abandoned because out there 48 hours is reckoned to be the limit.
Bob Ritchie's is just one of the many stories from this rugged country, where anyone who strays off 'the bitumen' (the only made-up road) stands a pretty good chance of ' doing a perish.'
Produced by DAVID GERRARD A co-production with the Australian Broadcasting Commission

PRESIDENT AURIOL of France visited the Festival of Britain, MR TEASY-WEASY created the H Bomb style hair-do, and a new word entered Fleet Street's vocabulary -' cosh boy.'
On film JACK WARNER was gunned down by DIRK BOCARDE in The Blue Lamp, ANTONY ARMSTRONG-JONES coxed the Cambridge boat to victory. GORDON RICHARDS won the Lincoln and GILBERT HARDING presided over another telepathic miracle by THE PIDDINGTONS

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.
