King Vidor Season
starring Hedy Lamarr Robert Young
The product of a conservative Boston family, young Harry Pulham seems destined to lead a wealthy uneventful existence, until service overseas in World War I leaves him with a restless spirit of rebellion. Then he meets Marvin Myles, a beautiful career girl who is to alter drastically his outlook on life. Vidor assembled a fine cast for the film version of J. P. Marquand 's novel, the kind of saga of American life which always attracted him.

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.
