A Celebration of the Man of Steel

Dana Carvey , Chief Historian of the Junior Superman of America, is your host for this review of his greatest adventures and examination of the superhero's cultural influence as portrayed in books, magazines, two television series and a clutch of feature films. Among those interviewed are old enemies, some of today's crime fighters such as the Awesome Pair, the mother of Superman's love-child and those who really know him - the good citizens of Metropolis. With Christopher Reeve , Lou Reed , Hal Holbrook ,
Ralph Nader , The Flash, The Green Lantern and Superman's Dry Cleaner.

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.
