The goal that stopped 400 million hearts... Wolfgang Weber (left) beats England goalkeeper Gordon Banks to put West Germany level seconds before full-time in the World Cup Final at Wembley two years ago. Weber's goal sent the match into extra time, but it wasn't enough to save the Germans. England, rising to their greatest heights, scored twice more to take the world crown. Now, today, in Hanover the West Germans seek revenge in a match that seems certain to be another thriller.
Introduced by Harry Carpenter.

: The Saturday Thriller: The Lady Vanishes

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement.

Starring Margaret Lockwood, Michael Redgrave

Did a frail old English governess vanish on a transcontinental express? Was there ever an old lady in the first place, or did the blow on the head that Iris Henderson received make her imagine that Miss Froy existed? A sinister doctor almost convinces her that she is suffering from hallucinations, but when one of his patients, swathed in bandages, is brought aboard the train accompanied by a nun, and the nun is wearing high-heeled shoes under her habit, Iris's suspicions are confirmed.
This is one of Alfred Hitchcock's finest films, made before he left Britain for Hollywood, and it contains all the ingredients we have come to expect from the master: comedy and horror, the normal and the abnormal, all adding up to an outstandingly exciting movie.

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.
