The Late Film: The Family Way


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 Hayley Mills, Hywel Bennett, John Mills, Marjorie Rhodes with Avril Angers, Liz Fraser, Wilfred Pickles, John Comer, Barry Foster, Murray Head
The wedding of Arthur and Jenny is a typical North of England family affair, but afterwards one disaster seems to follow another. On their wedding night the young couple's bed (rigged by Arthur's boss) collapses, and next day so does their honeymoon in Majorca when they discover that the travel agent has absconded with everybody's money. The marriage seems doomed to failure before it has really begun.

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.
