Bund Hauls a woman they said ... But three would be better
Alan Whicker shares
THE WORLD OF JAMES BOND
Tonight we join 007-Secret Agent and all-time Box Office champion. We're on location in Japan with the Bond £ 3,000,000 epic-You Only Live Twice.
For Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman , the two multimillionaire producers, making the picture is an oriental headache, especially with Sean Connery , another millionaire and perhaps the best-known face in the world.
You've got to think big for Bond films: such as building a f 400,000 volcano and then blowing it up!

: The British Film Comedy: Life is a Circus

A season of Britain's great laughter-makers.
This week: Life is a Circus
Starring The Crazy Gang: Bud Flanagan, Nervo and Knox, Naughton and Gold with 'Monsewer' Eddie Gray and guest star, Chesney Allen

The Crazy Gang have been jack-of-all trades, sweeping up after the elephants with Joe Winter's Monster Circus for almost as long as the circus has been on the road. But Joe is fighting a losing battle - most of his acts have deserted him: even the elephants have walked out. The Gang persuade him to let them try to save the situation by putting on a show of their own - with hilarious results.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
