Film-maker Alex Cox introduces a series of classic cult films.
Tonight: Electra Glide in Blue
Starring Robert Blake, Billy (Green) Bush

Roaring up and down the Arizona highways, motorcycle cop John Wintergreen dreams of becoming a detective.
When he discovers a corpse, apparently suicide, 'Big John' decides that it is, in fact, murder. With his hunch proved correct he is promoted to detective, but he soon finds the work far from glamorous. Cameraman Conrad Hall brilliantly captures the spectacular American landscape, creating a fascinating background to the action.
Screenplay by ROBERT BORRIS Based on the novel by ROBERT BORRIS and RUPERT HITZIG Produced and directed by JAMES WILLIAM GUERCIO

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.
