The Saturday Film: Can't Stop the Music


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.
The Musical Extravaganza starring
The Village People with Valerie Perrine Bruce Jenner
The exuberant disco musical starring the outrageous Village People and Hot Gossip in songs and dances including 'Liberation, 'Milk shake', the title song and, of course, the spectacular Busby Berkeley style 'YMCA'. Aspiring composer Jack Morell and girlfriend Samantha decide that demo tapes are needed to impress the potential backers - unfortunately they are short of cash. They decide to find a backing group from the streets of New York's Greenwich Village.
Directed by NANCY WALKER

BBC One London, 17 December 1983 18.00

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.
