The Late Show: Batman Special


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.
The last in the current series.
A documentary whirl around one of the favourite mythical heroes of modern times. The
Late Show traces Batman's history from pulp vigilante and Second World War patriot through to 1950s scoutmaster and 1960s camp cult-figure. In his time, the Caped Crusader has been accused of homosexuality, castigated for promoting juvenile delinquency and taken to task by Pravda. But, as usual in the world of comics, virtue has triumphed. Batman has made a brilliant resurgence in the 1980s and is soon to be the star, with Jack Nicholson , of his own 50 million dollar film.

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.
