Alex Cox presents the first in a new season of outstanding cult films.
Assault on Precinct 13
In Anderson, a Los Angeles ghetto, six members of a youth gang are shot dead in a police ambush. Bishop, a young police lieutenant, is given the job of manning the old precinct station for the last few hours before it is closed - an easy job. When he gives refuge to a man on the run, a nightmare begins. This taut, tough thriller, directed by John Carpenter (Hallowe'en, They Live!), is one of the most famous cult films of recent years.
0 GUIDE: featuring all the films from the three 'Moviedrome' seasons is available from BSS. [address removed] price £2.75.

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.
