Milestones of the Film


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.
A new season of classic films which have influenced the development of world cinema. Miracle in Milan starring Francesco Golisano, Brunella Bovo, Emma Gramatica
Toto, an orphan, has been brought up by the saintly Lollota to be generous and good. When he arrives in Milan he is shocked by the misery and hopelessness of the city's down-and-outs and soon becomes their leader in a struggle against poverty and oppression. But a miracle is needed if they are to succeed.
De Sica's moving fantasy shows once again his deep feeling of compassion for the poor, a feeling also much in evidence in such realistic stories as Shoeshine and Bicycle Thieves.
Screenplay by CESARE ZAVATTINI and VITTORIO DE SICA from the novel Toto il Buono by CESARE ZAVATTINI
Director Vittorio DE SICA

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.
