Top Hat

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.
An Astaire-Rogers musical starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers with Edward Everett Horton, Helen Broderick and Eric Blore.
Featuring the ever-popular Irving Berlin numbers, "Top Hat, White Tie, and Tails," "Cheek to Cheek", "Isn't this a lovely day?" and "Piccolino".
The greatest of all musical-comedy teams in the cinema, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, made many films which are evergreen in the memory of an older generation, and no less popular with the younger. "Top Hat" is, by general agreement, the best of them all. It is a backstage story, and the setting is London, with a trip to Venice.

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.
