continues a season of films new to television.
Tonight starring Dean Jones
Louise Sorel
Katy Kurtzman
1937, Bridgeport, Connecticut. For most of America this is a time of Depression, but for Daniel and Sarah Cooper, it is as good a time as any to be growing up. When Sarah befriends the town outcast, a mute veteran of World War I, no-one can anticipate the events that are to follow and the dramatic effects they are to have on the community. The summer of 1937 is one that they will never forget.

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.
