Omnibus: Ian Fleming: Creator of the James Bond Myth


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.
"In this age of higher education, writers seem to be ashamed of inventing heroes who are white, villains who are black and heroines who are a delicate shade of pink."
"What are the ingredients of a thriller? Briefly, the ingredients are anything that will thrill any of the human senses - absolutely anything."
"I am not an angry young or even middle-aged man. I am not 'involved.' My books are not 'engaged.' They are written for warm-blooded heterosexuals in railway trains, aeroplanes or beds." (Ian Fleming)
A documentary film of the life of the man who created a monster myth as told by his friends, colleagues and critics. With the help of Kingsley Amis, Henry Brandon, Cyril Connolly, Noël Coward, Col Peter Fleming, Paul Johnson, Lois Maxwell, William Plomer, Diana Rigg and many others, with Sean Connery and George Lazenby as James Bond and including sequences from the latest Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service".

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.
