Anna Neagle in Yellow Canary


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.
with Richard Greene, Margaret Rutherford

Officially requested to leave wartime Britain because of her Nazi sympathies, Sally Maitland boards a Canada-bound ship where she meets John Garrick, a young Englishman, and Jan Orlock, a Polish refugee.
In Halifax, Nova Scotia, they become involved in a daring German plot - but are these three ill-matched characters really what they seem?
Anna Neagle plays one of her most unusual roles in this World War II mystery thriller, directed by her then husband.

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.
