Oleg Basilashvili
Andrei is a man who can never quite catch up with himself. An academic who also does literary translati-ons, he has a mistress on the wrong side of Leningrad; which means that crossing the city late at night, he is apt to find all the bridges over the Neva raised to let the shipping through, cutting him off from home till dawn. Andrei's inability to handle his own life-style frequently has painful consequences for others and eventually his family, his mistress and his friends can stand it no more....
This ' sad comedy' by the Soviet cinema's leading satirist won the main prize at the 1979 San Sebastian Film Festival.

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.
