starring Gene Kelly
Donald O'Connor , Debbie Reynolds with Jean Hagen
Millard Mitchell , Cyd Charisse
Evita star Elaine Page chose one of the greatest film musicals ever made as the film she would most like to see on television - partly for its humour and partly for the dazzling dancing of Gene Kelly. A satirical, tuneful and affectionate story of Hollywood in the 20s, it shows the movie business grappling with the problem of talkies.
Directed by GENE KELLY , STANLEY DONEX Films: page 16

Midweek Cinema: Singin' in the Rain

BBC Two England, 14 December 1978 20.30

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.
