Synopsis

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.
starring Fay Wray Robert Armstrong Bruce Cabot and Kong - 'eighth wonder of the world!'
The original King Kong - the most enduring and famous of all the great monster movies and the one that set the standards by which all fantasy films are now judged, with its stunning stop-motion animation by Willis H. O'Brien.
Kong is the giant gorilla who is brought out of the jungle as a 'side-show' attraction. When he escapes into Manhattan it seems that no force on earth can stop him.

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.
