Synopsis

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.
or Positively The Last Performance
A film of life in one of the last of the Irish road-shows
"Existence as portable as the props. Travelling light, living in transit, always thinking of that next town just ahead ..."
Written and produced by Maurice Leitch
Directed by Robin Wylie
from Northern Ireland
The entertainers portrayed in this film are a rapidly dying breed, and are possibly the last surviving family in Ireland to dispense a nightly three-hour brew of blood and thunder melodrama. The Courtneys play in a wooden and canvas booth and their audience sits on benches on the grass to watch such dramas as East Lynne, Murder in the Old Red Barn, and The Caryl Chessman Story.

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.
