What's New Pussycat?


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.
Starring Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss, Woody Allen
Guest appearance by Ursula Andress

When Michael James consults psychiatrist Fritz Fassbender the outcome only adds to his problem - an over-abundance of beautiful girls.
Humorist Woody Allen made his film debut as both writer and actor in this hilarious look at 20th-century man's obsession with sex. Peter O'Toole is the lucky man in the midst of a breath-taking array of delectable females, and Peter Sellers is in his best continental form as the eccentric Fassbender.

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.
