Rocky II


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 Rematch! starring
Having gone the distance in a dramatic title fight with the World Heavyweight
Champion, Apollo Creed,
Rocky Balboa finds getting back to normality pretty hard. Unable to cope with new-found fame, and out of a job, things look bad for him. Creed meanwhile taunts
Rocky at every turn - challenging him to re-enter the ring for a second battle. In spite of an eye injury that could render him blind, Rocky finally agrees to fight again.
Produced by ROBERT CHARTOFF and irwin winkler
Written and directed by SYLVESTER STALLONE

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.
