Film of the Week: Don't Look Now


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.
Donald Sutherland , Julie Christie Following the accidental drowning of their young daughter, John and Laura Baxter go to Venice - he to work and she to recuperate. The couple meet two sisters taking a winter holiday in the beautiful but strangely eerie city. One of the women claims to have psychic powers and convinces Laura that she can communicate with the dead child, gradually involving the couple in a series of bizarre happenings and encounters that can only lead to tragedy. This is one of the most hauntingly beautiful and mysterious films of the last decade.

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.
