Midweek Cinema: The Browning Version


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.
The first of a short season of films featuring Britain's knights of the stage in some of their most distinguished film performances. Tonight
Michael Redgrave stars with Jean Kent, Nigel Patrick, Wilfrid Hyde White Andrew Crocker-Harris is enduring his last day as classics master at a major public school. The career, begun with such confidence, is ending in disaster and disillusionment. But then a simple farewell gift - the Browning version of the Agamemnon - from one of the boys changes Crocker-Harris's cold reserved outlook on the world and moves him deeply.

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.
