Tonight's film in this comedy season stars

In America, tonight's film was called / Was A Male Warbride, which accurately and wittily sums up the dilemma of Cary Grant as French Army Officer Henri Rochard when he marries Ann Sheridan - Lt Gates of the us Women's Army Corps - and she is recalled to the States. Henri, now demobilised, decides to go too, but how? The American Consul comes up with the brilliant notion of listing him as ' an alien spouse of female military personnel.'

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.
