Alice in Wonderland


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 film re-creation by JONATHAN MILLER
The first showing for nearly 20 years of Jonathan Miller 's remarkable interpretation of Lewis Carroll 's masterpiece. In its claustrophobic and at times frightening view of Victorian adult society, the film has none of the whimsy so often generated by Alice. Commissioned for the Music and Arts Department it's a film which deserves its status as one of the most original and imaginative dramas of the last 50 years. Cheshire Cat PRIMROSE and MARK ALLINGTON
Music by ravi SHANKAR with LEON GOOSSENS
Film editor PAM BOSWORTH Directed and produced by JONATHAN MILLER

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.
