Star Movie: One Touch of Venus


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 Ava Gardner, Robert Walker with Eve Arden, Dick Haymes

Eddie Hatch, a department-store window dresser, is rendered immortal by a kiss when a statue of Venus comes to life and falls in love with him! A beautiful, persistent goddess draped in white is not easy for Eddie to hide, especially when pursued by a possessive fiancee and an irate employer.
Based on the stage musical by S.J. Perelman and Ogden Nash, this lively comedy contains three of the original Kurt Weill songs.

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.
