Yakov Bok, a Jew living beyond the pale in pre-revolutionary Russia, decides to leave his small village and seek work in the city of Kiev. Here, leading a precarious existence as a Gentile without identification papers, he finds work as a repair man, a 'fixer'. But soon the savage spectre of anti-semitism seeks him out and Yakov Bok becomes a victim of his time.
Bernard Malamud 's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is brought to the screen in John Frankenheimer 's powerful and moving film.

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.
