The first showing on network television for this musical biography of rock legend Jim Morrison , starring Val Kilmer , Meg Ryan and Kyle MacLachlan
Oliver Stone's intense portrayal of the so-called "Lizard King" and demon prince of 60s rock begins in California in 1965, with the 22-year-old Morrison spending his time on the beach writing poetry and taking drugs. After dropping out of college with fellow student Ray Manzarek he formsthe Doors with two other musicians.
The remaining film catalogues Morrison's journey to an early grave in 1971, combining brilliantly staged concert sequences with his now legendary narcotic and sexual habits. Classic hits such as Riders on the Storm, Hello, I Love You, Break On
Through, Light My Fire and The End are all featured along the way.

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.
