Once Upon a Time ... Is 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.
In remembrance of Her Serene Highness
Princess Grace of Monaco
In 1977 documentary film maker Kevin Billington directed this sensitive, affectionate biography of Princess Grace. He could not have foreseen the now bitter irony of his opening-the famous car sequence from To Catch a Thief. Princess Grace talks about her life, her role as a wife and mother, and illuminates not only the well-known Hollywood days of stardom but also her early career as a model and as a television and stage performer.
Among the contributors are her husband Prince Rainier, James Stewart , Alfred Hitchcock , William Holden , Stanley Kramer and Raymond Massey.

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.
