Angry, Sexy and Working Class


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.
1/4. Actor Christopher Eccleston explores the bleak, anti-establishment and often angry British films of the late 50s and early 60s that took inspiration from John Osborne 's 1956 "kitchen sink" stage hit Look
Back in Anger. In a period of relaxed censorship, the films tackled sexual, domestic and social issues in a way that changed British cinema (and television) for ever. Contributors include Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey), Dora Bryan , Albert Finney and Shirley-Anne Field (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning), Wendy Craig (The Servant), writer David Storey (This Sporting Life), cinematographer Walter Lassally (A Taste of Honey), composer Richard Rodney Bennett (Billy Liar) and social realist director Ken Loach.

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.
