Star Movie: You Never Can Tell


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.
Dick Powell , Peggy Dow with Charles Drake , Joyce Holden
King, a german shepherd dog, is willed six million dollars by his eccentric owner. Ellen Hathaway , the beautiful private secretary to the deceased millionaire, is named as trustee and recipient of the fortune in the event of King's death. Not surprisingly, she becomes dogged by fortune hunters who would rather see King out of the way ... Dick Powell stars as Rex Shepherd - without doubt his most unusual screen role - in this ingeniously funny film.

BBC Two England, 15 February 1982 15.55

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.
