The Late Film: Smile


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 Bruce Dern
Barbara Feldon
Thirty-three girls arrive in Santa Rosa,
California. Their single aim: to be crowned
'Young American
Miss'. Their strongest determination: to smile! Michael Ritchie presents a devastating portrait of the beauty parade business in America and satirises many aspects of the west coast's social and economic life.
Screenplay by JERRY BELSON Produced and directed by MICHAEL RITCHIE

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.
