: The Best of Morecambe and Wise

A special Saturday Show featuring some of the funniest moments from their BBC-tv series
Written by SID GREEN and DICK HILLS starring
ERIC and ERNIE
MORECAMBE WISE
Produced by JOHN AMMONDS
Tonight's show is going to be a collection of those items that Eric and Ernie like best and have enjoyed most during their last series. At the time of going to press, the lads are still arguing about what to put in and what they must leave out. But one thing is sure: among the sketches that you certainly will see is the one where everybody-including guest star Georgia Brown-finishes by wearing lampshades on their heads and cricket pads firmly strapped to their legs

: THE SATURDAY THRILLER

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
Nightmare Alley starring
TYRONE POWER
JOAN BLONDELL
COLEEN GRAY
Screenplay by JULES FURTHMAN from a novel by WILLIAM LINDSAY GRESHAM
Produced by George Jessel
Directed by Edmund Goulding
Stan, a small-time but ambitious barker for a fair, tricks his way into becoming a successful mind-reader by ruthlessly exploiting his friends-until his ambition overreaches itself.
This is one of Tyrone Power's most distinguished films. He is cast against type as a hard-headed fairground hustler-a very different role from the one he was seen in when The Razor's Edge was recently screened in The Great Stars series. Nightmare Alley is an exceptionally offbeat film for the period it was made in, and was not a great box-office success at the time of its initial release. This was probably because of Power's unsympathetic role, though his performance can now be seen as one of his best.
Joan Blondell , usually cast in comedy roles, here gives a mature character performance as Zeena, a ' mind-reader' reduced to fairground work on account of her drunken husband. She finds herself tricked by Stan into revealing the techniques of her act which he later exploits to his own ends.
The film is directed by Edmund Goulding , a British stage actor who went to Hollywood as a writer and later turned to directing. Among his screen credits are Grand Hotel, The Great Lie, May-time, and The Razor's Edge.

: Braden's Week

Each week
25,000 tons of newsprint
50 hours of news bulletins
One man
BERNARD BRADEN and his team John Pitman, Esther Rantzen, take a look at some of the things that happened-and some of the things that didn't.
Song of the week: Jake Thackray
Children of the week: Harold Williamson
Designer, Don Giles
Director, SIMON WADLEIGH
Producer, JOHN LLOYD
Edited by DESMOND WILCOX and BILL MORTON
If Noel Coward had been born in Leeds it would not have been necessary to invent Jake Thackray. As it is, there are differences. In the world of Noel Coward, men enter through french windows saying 'Anyone for tennis?' In Jake's world they come through pub doors saying 'Where's the draught beer? '
So far, in the songs he writes each week, Jake has fallen in love with our Sally-Ann girl, dreamed of kissing a vicar's missus, lusted after a newspaper pin-up called Fifi Golightly, and knocked ash from his pipe all over his landlord's suede shoes. This week... only Jake knows.

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.
