Screen Two: The Reflecting Skin


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.
This BBC film divided the critics on its British cinematic release in 1990. But Philip Ridley's debut feature went on to collect awards at most of the major European film festivals before coming to Screen Two; it is shown in letter-box format.
Eight-year-old Seth is growing up in the American Midwest in the 50s. But the dream of childhood is about to be interrupted when a beautiful English widow, Dolphin Blue, moves into a nearby house. Ridley wrote the screenplay for The Krays and is also acclaimed as a novelist, playwright and painter.

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.
