: Follies of the Wise

' Everyone has dreams, not many of which get clothed in concrete ' A lady in Lancs said 'A tpire is what every good church must require'
But her sis, with a glower

Scattered around the countryside, follies are strange monuments to our ancestors and their passions.

: Masquerade

starring Cliff Robertson
Jack Hawkins , Marisa Mell with Michel Piccoli , Bill Fraser
There's more than a touch of James Bond about Cliff Robertson in this lively British thriller. He plays a ' soldier of fortune,' hired by the Foreign Office to protect a young Arab prince in a game of power politics over oil concessions. Jack Hawkins , as Colonel Drexel of the Foreign Office, master-minds the whole affair, and Marisa Mell plays the delectable Sophie who rescues Robertson from a few tight spots.
Screenplay by MICHAEL RELPH and WILLIAM GOLDMAN from the novel Castle Minerva by VICTOR CANNING Produced by MICHAEL RELPH Directed by BASIL DEARDEN

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
