starring Harry Bclafonte Dorothy Dandridge with Pearl Bailey
This dazzling version of Bizet's Carmen is set during World War II with lyrics in the jazz idiom by Oscar Hammerstein II.
Dorothy Dandridge gives her best-ever screen performance as the passion- ate, sultry Carmen who always gets her man. As the young serviceman trying to get to flying school, Harry Belafonte does everything he can-but not quite enough - to stay out of her clutches. (voice Of LE VERN HUTCHERSON) (voice Of MARILYN HORNE) (voice of MARVIN HAYES)
Books and lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN 11 Produced and directed by OTTO PREMINGER Films: page 19

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.
