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 the Sunday afternoon season of musical films starring Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds.

For young photographer Melvin Hoover a chance encounter in Central Park with chorus girl Judy LeRoy becomes love at first sight. To spend more time with Judy he promises her a cover picture on Look magazine - a promise that is difficult to fulfil.
Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds star in this light-hearted musical comedy where - in the best Hollywood tradition - all ends happily.

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.
