Marisa Solinas , Germano Giglioli in Renzo and Luciana, and Anita Ekberg , Peppino de Filippo in The Temptation of Dr Antonio
A 1970s version of Decameron, created by four famous Italian directors, starts tonight with a film by Mario Monicelli shown for the first time in this country.
Renzo and Luciana are young and in love. Luciana's ardent desire to be a wife, fully endowed with every conceivable household appliance, has two serious obstacles: Renzo is only a delivery boy and her own job requires her to remain unmarried ...
The second film is by Federico Fellini and concerns a moral reformer who becomes obsessed with a lady on a milk poster.

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.
