: The Saturday Thriller: The Unguarded Moment

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
Starring Esther Williams, George Nader, John Saxon
with Edward Andrews, Les Tremayne

The Unguarded Moment is a tense and exciting thriller about an attractive but unmarried school-teacher who receives a series of anonymous letters believed to be sent by the same person responsible for a brutal murder at the school. Her efforts to identify the sender draw her into a web of suspicion and menace.

Esther Williams, one-time swimming star of countless M.G.M. musicals, gives an accomplished performance in her first dramatic role as Lois Conway, the school-teacher. George Nader, leading man of Universal action pictures of the 1950s (who, incidentally, can be seen later tonight in BBC-2's Midnight Movie), plays police lieutenant Harry Graham who is instrumental in bringing the case to a conclusion. John Saxon makes his screen debut as Leonard Bennett, a disturbed student who, it seems, may be responsible for the notes - and the murder.

: 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

Harold Williamson does talk to adults. In fact, he spends most of his time doing just that - in private life and as a Man Alive reporter. But once a week he talks to children - all kinds of children - for Braden's Week.
There was the little girl from Leeds who was asked about men going to the moon, and talked about burglars and all the squeaks in her bedroom. There was the very young Sikh who noticed Harold's gold tooth but then decided it wasn't gold after all - it was bronze. And there was the young TV critic who thought that newsreaders were retired at thirty-five because after that their hands shook too much for them to hold the news bulletins. All of them were charming children but, all the same, Harold Williamson does talk to grown-ups, too.

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.

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.
