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.
This star-studded adaptation Of F. SCOTT FITZGERALD 'S novel about Hollywood was written for the screen by HAROLD PINTER.
In the 1930s, when Hollywood captured the hearts, imaginations and money of millions of movie-goers, the youthful head of a major studio named Monroe Stahr was a leading light. But while he fulfills his dreams on the big screen, the reality of his relationships proves far more elusive and painful.

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.
