: Best of Sellers: The Wrong Arm of the Law

The first of a season of films displaying the many-sided talents of Peter Sellers with Lionel Jeffries, Bernard Cribbins, Nanette Newman, Davy Kaye, Bill Kerr.
When a gang of phoney policemen hi-jack London's leading crooks and make off with their ill-gotten gains, the underworld is up in arms - and so begins the craziest conspiracy in criminal history, between the cops and the robbers! For Peter Sellers a tailor-made role as full-time gang leader and spare-time couturier, with Lionel Jeffries as the wonderfully confused police inspector.

: Civilisation: 8: The Light of Experience

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
"All the greatest exponents of civilisation, from Dante to Goethe, have been obsessed by light - perhaps one could take it as the supreme symbol of civilisation. But in the 17th century, the invention of the lens was giving light a new range and power."
The telescope and the microscope revealed new worlds in space and in a drop of water; and the realism of Dutch painting carried a stage further the observation of human character. Kenneth Clark's story takes him from the Holland of Rembrandt and Vermeer to the London of Wren, Purcell and the Royal Society.
"When I say that I find Kenneth Clark's 'Civilisation' entertaining, and so does my wife and my children's nannie and a 16-year-old American girl who happens to be visiting us, why am I suspect!" EVENING STANDARD

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.

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