Moviedrome: The Fog


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 first of tonight's two films beginning a new season of cult movies, introduced by Mark Cousins. (Darkness in Tallinn follows later at 12.15am.)
John Carpenter's chiller, starring Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook, Jamie Lee Curtis
Local legend tells of a ship lured on to the rocks of Antonio Bay being enveloped by a supernatural cloud as it sank; the myth says that when this mysterious mist returns, the murdered mariners will rise up seeking vengeance. A hundred years later, the town's late-night DJ broadcasts a fog warning - a prelude to two nights of terror. Showing in widescreen format. (1980,15)

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.
