The feature film starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Dorothy Stratten
The brief career of Dorothy Stratten as a budding actress flickered only momentarily in a world of stars and superstars, but her death was a tragedy played out against the glamorous backdrop of Hollywood.
Jamie Lee Curtis, star of Halloween and winner of a British Academy Award for her role in Trading Places, plays the vulnerable teenager who was too trusting of the husband who helped propel her from obscurity to stardom.

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.
