Love on the Run: Thieves Like Us


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 feature film starring
Keith Carradine , Shelley Duvall
This remarkable film follows the fate and misfortunes of three prisoners who abscond from a Mississippi farm penitentiary. With the 1930s depression at its height they revert to crime, robbing banks and eventually committing murder. Almost inexorably, circumstances, the law and their own differing natures create a strangle-hold on their lives and emotions.
Carradine and Duvall are outstanding as the gentle and doomed lovers whose affair forms the central theme and leads to one of the most memorable and terrifying climaxes in the history of the movies.
Produced by JERRY BICK

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.
