The Cannes Film Festival with Barry Norman


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.
"Although winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes is unlikely to create the box-office buzz that winning an Oscar does, it Is a pointer to the serious content of the film, and probably denotes critical success more than commercial success," says Barry Norman as Film 94 ends the current series by taking off to the south of France to report on this year's festival.
He adds that with less
American domination of the festival there will hopefully be a little more emphasis on the movies rather than on the razzmatazz that surrounds the appearance of the stars. Among the films that are guaranteed to cause a stir are
Quentin Tarantino 's Pulp Fiction, the British entry, The Browning
Version, directed by Mike Figgis , and the festival's opening film Hudsucker Proxy by former Paime d'Or winners Joel and Ethan Coen.
Director Paul Wooding
Producer Bruce Thompson

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.
