Saturday Night at the Movies: Wet Gold


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.
continues a season of films new to television.
Tonight starring Brooke Shields, Burgess Meredith
Laura is young, beautiful and sick of her life waitressing in a cheap diner by day and fantasising about wealth with her boyfriend Barnes by night. Then one morning she stumbles across Sampson, an old drunken beach bum who tells her a fantastic tale of a sunken ship and a fortune in gold. With Sampson as a Partner, Laura persuades Barnes and a diver called Keating to help her find the treasure. All goes well until the first sign of gold, when greed begins to infect the group - with terrible and violent consequences.

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.
