King Vidor


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.
The Men Who Made the Movies
For the next two weeks BBC2 highlights the work of King Vidor, the film director whose gift for striking imagery made its first great impact with the silent classics The Big Parade and The Crowd.
KING VIDOR maintains that he has never made a film that contained a conventional villain - evil in his films is much more elemental, due to natural, economic, or social upheavals. In this programme, made for American television, he talks about his films, with extracts from The Big Parade, The Crowd, Show People, Hallelujah, The Champ, Our Daily Bread, Northwest Passage, Duel in the Sun, War and Peace.
Written, produced and directed by RICHARD SCHICKEL. A WNET production


Unknown: Cliff Robertson
Directed By: Richard Schickel.

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.
