Fred 'n' Ginger: Shall We Dance


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.
Astaire Ginger Rogers
GEORGE GERSHWIN , who died 50 years ago today, supplied only one score out of the nine RKO Astaire-Rogers musicals, but it proved to be a great one. The songs include the title number, 'They all laughed', 'They can't take that away from me' and 'Let's call the whole thing off. Fred plays a world-renowned ballet dancer, while Ginger is a famous venue artist. At first there's antipathy, but romance and songs win through....
Screenplay by ALLAN SCOTT. ERNEST PAGANO , based on Watch Your Step by LEE LOEB and HAROLD BUCHMAN Produced by PANDRO S. BERMAN Directed by MARK SANDRICH

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.
