: The Movie Crazy Years

A nostalgic look back to Hollywood's booming 30s.
Warner Brothers practically invented the gangster movie, and pioneered the hard-hitting social dramas like I am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang. On the lighter side there were the delirious musicals of Busby Berkeley, like Gold Diggers of 1933. Then there were Cagney, Bogart and Errol Flynn ; Little Caesar, Jeze- bel and Captain Blood.
The pictures were fun, but making them was something else. Recalling the hard work, technical skill and glamour of the era at Warner .Brothers, the foremost studio of the era, are: The stars:
Bette Davis
Edward G. Robinson Olivia de Havilland Pat O'Brien
Joan Blondell The directors:
Busby Berkeley
Mervyn LeRoy, William Wellman The writers:
Dalton Trumbo , John Bright and producer: Hal Wallis
Written by RICHARD SCHICKEL Narrated by MICHAEL TOLAN Produced by JAC VENZA An NET production

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.
