: Yesterday's Witness in America

Four films that take an unfamiliar look at the United States.
Narrated by James Cameron 1: Babes in Hollywood
The 1930s were the golden age of the child movie-star. Scores of tousle-headed moppets were dragged West to Hollywood by movie-struck mothers. It was the Great Depression, and desperate parents were lured to the world's film capital by the promise of easy riches and instant fame -$2,000 a week and top-line billing. But the reality was invariably crueller. A brief and lucky spell in the limelight led almost inevitably to retirement at 12 or 13. And then what for the rest of your life?
This is the story of five of those famous children and what became of them, with rare glimpses of what they looked like on screen. And there's a sixth; the legendary Baby Peggy who was a movie-star back in the 20s, long before the baby bonanza of the 30s boomed. From Hal Roach 's Our Gang, ' Stymie ' Beard and Darla Hood remember what it was like to be America's best-known ' next-door kids '; and Edith Fellows , Dickie Moore and Billy Mauch recall their scenes with Hollywood legends like W. C. FIELDS, MARLENE DIET-RICH and ERROL FLYNN.

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.
