Steven Spielberg on Schindler's List


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.
"There were days when I wanted to pack up at lunchtime and tell everyone to go home," says director Steven Spielberg about his latest multi-Oscar-nominated film, Schindler's List.
In an interview filmed by Jon Blair , maker of the documentary Schindler which was shown on BBC2 last week, Spielberg reveals that the film stretched him way beyond anything he'd done before. Not only was it a departure in style for him - he says he "used a documentary/ news approach rather than my usual David Lean approach" - but the subject matter was particularly stressful for a man rediscovering Judaism.
The interview gives a rare insight into the director's feelings and motives and is illustrated with clips from the film as well as archive footage of some of those who survived the Holocaust because they were on Schindler's list.

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.
