The Friday Film: Banyon


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.
The feature film starring
Robert Forster , Jose Ferrer
Private eye Miles Banyon is put on the spot when a cocktail waitress is found murdered with his gun in his office. Banyon suspects the frame is the work of Victor Pappas whom he once sent to jail, but nothing can be certain in the corrupt atmosphere of Los Angeles in the 30s.

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.
