Marcello Mastroianni
Monica Vitti , Giancarlo Giannini
Marcello Mastroianni 's portrayal of a jealous Roman bricklayer won him the Cannes Film Festival Best Actor award in Ettore Scola 's satirical comedy about the Italian working class.
Early one morning a police car stops in the Rome fruit and vegetable market. A tousled man gets out. He is Oreste, a bricklayer, handcuffed and dazed. He is joined by a pizza-maker named Nello and, together, they try to explain to the police the events that led to the stabbing of a beautiful flower-seller.

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.
