: The Ealing Comedies: Tuesday's Documentary

presents A Story of Kind Hearts and Overdrafts

The story of a handful of young men who wrote a chapter of cinema history. In just 10 years, from post-war austerity, they produced a series of film comedies which were so original and funny that the name of their quiet, residential London borough became world famous. In their own peculiar way they put Ealing on the map.
Told by Frank Muir

Special reminiscences by Sir Michael Balcon, Joan Greenwood, Sir Alec Guinness,
Barbara Murray, Jack Warner and some of the writers, producers and directors who were given their chance in what was called 'Mr Balcon's Academy for young gentlemen' with excerpts from such Ealing comedies as: Hue and Cry, Passport to Pimlico, Kind Hearts and Coronets, Whisky Galore, A Run for your Money, The Lavender Hill Mob, The Man in the White Suit, The Ladykillers and also from other Ealing films including Ships with Wings, San Demetrio - London, Black Sheep of Whitehall, The Captive Heart, Dead of Night, It Always Rains on Sunday, The Blue Lamp.

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.

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