A small boy dreams his piano teacher is holding 500 boys captive in an enchanted castle and forcing them to practise every day.

After making a name for himself as a young producer of difficult subjects - the first ones in collaboration with Carl Foreman on classics like The Men, Home of the Brave and High Noon - Kramer made a whole series of off-beat films including The 5,000 Fingers of Dr T.

: Holiday 70

with Cliff Michelmore
Having looked at a canal cruising holiday in France, Holiday 70 this week investigates a domestic alternative. We take a leisurely trip in North Wales-from the Shropshire Union Canal, along the Llangollen Canal, which runs for 46 miles through some magnificent scenery, ending near the famous Horseshoe Falls.
Every Mediterranean civilisation of the last 3,000 years has helped to shape the culture of Tunisia. Now the tourists are making their mark. But can Tunisia offer something different from the usual picture-postcard cliches of North Africa? Holiday 70 finds out.

: Private Lives

A new wildlife film series
The Private Life of the Starling The starling is the commonest and most successful bird in the world. Why is it so numerous? What is the secret of its success? Of what use is its gift for vocal mimicry? Is it the farmer's friend or foe? Why does it spray its feathers with formic acid? Why does it commute to big cities for the night? What is the purpose of its ' sunset spectacular,' when three million birds give the most impressive exhibition of aerobatics that can be seen in the whole world of birds?
This film was Britain's short film entry for the recent Moscow Film Festival. Directed and filmed by RONALD and ROSEMARY EASTMAN

: Omnibus presents

the award-winning film about F. Scott Fitzgerald starring
Edward Woodward , Lelia Goldoni in The Dream Divided by FRED BURNLEY and BARBARA BARKHAM
Scott Fitzgerald was the darling and the genius of the Jazz Age-and died at 44 in obscure poverty in Hollywood in 1940. Author of The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night, his literary success began at the top and plummeted downwards through his lifetime. This dramatised film which contributed to Fred Burnley's and Edward Woodward 's SFTA awards, authentically recreates his moving and tragic marriage to Zelda, her lapse into madness, and his crack-up - the last unhappy years of alcoholism. Always curiously prophetic about his own fate, Fitzgerald examines his life entirely in his own words.

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.
