talking to Richard Attenborough and members of the National Film Theatre about his 50 years in films, as actor-writer-composer-director. Introducing scenes from Cavalcade (1933).
' I'll always love the theatre a little better ... I'd rather play a bad matinee at Hull - incidentally I've never played a good matinee - than just do a movie.' Bitter Sweet (1941)
' The play that gave me the most pleasure to do.'
In Which We Serve (1942)
' It was really David Lean who directed the picture. I took the actors aside occasionally. But it was Lord Mountbatten who arranged everything.'
Brief Encounter (1946)
' I've always preferred suggestion rather than flat statement.' The Italian Job (1969)
' This, dear boys, is the beginning of the Noel Coward renaissance.'
(A lifetime of scene-stealing: page 9)

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.
