A Window in the War


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.
Colette 1873-1954
Narrated by MICHAEL HORDERN Colette's voice MARY WIMBUSH
A repeat showing of the Omnibus film to mark the centenary of the birth of the French writer Colette. Music-hall artist, journalist and beautician - three times married and lover of women as well as of men - everyone knows the film of her story Gigi, and of all French writers of the century, she's probably the most widely read.
This programme looks back from her Paris flat-during the German occupation in the 40s-at the story of her life, seen from a window in the war ...
With her daughter Colette de Jouvenel and her last husband
Maurice Goudeket
Executive producer MIKE WOOLLER ,
Written and directed by COLIN NEARS

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.
