Screen Two: Truly Madly Deeply


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A new BBC film starring Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman
In Anthony Minghella's highly acclaimed first film as a director, Nina is a young woman unable to cope with the death of her lover Jamie. One day she misses him so much that he comes back!
This film won three 1991 Evening Standard British Film Awards. As a writer, Minghella has won many awards for his radio plays and is a contributor to ITV's Inspector Morse. He traces the "fantastical flavour" of Truly Madly Deeply to his work on The Storyteller, an American series seen in Britain on Channel 4 about folk and fairy tales, which won him both an Emmy and a Bafta award: "After a diet of griffins, trolls, giants and witches, the idea of having ghosts as central characters didn't feel strange."

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
