The Monday Film: Rocky


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.
Sylvester Stallone with Talia Shire Burt Young
Burgess Meredith Carl Weathers
Rocky Balboa is a second-rate Philadelphia street-fighter trying to earn a living working for a local loan shark.
Depressed and penniless,
Rocky suddenly finds himself in the right place at the right time. Just before the World
Heavyweight Championship fight, the leading contender is injured. The Champ decides to give a local boy a shot at the title and picks the unknown Rocky because he likes his nickname. The stage is set for the most famous fight in movie history - Apollo Creed versus The Italian Stallion.

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.
