: Cannon: Blood on the Vine

William Conrad stars as private investigator Frank Cannon, a big man who walks alone in a dangerous world: following last Saturday's feature film which introduced Cannon, a new film series beginning tonight

No brakes. A car out of control hurtles down a perilous mountain road. Miraculously, the driver escapes with his life. But this is the third near-fatal accident for vineyard owner Mike Tampa. He is a friendly, happy man who flatly refuses to believe that anyone would want to kill him. Which makes Cannon's job of trying to keep Tampa alive almost impossible...

: George and Ira Gershwin's Of Thee I Sing

starring Carroll O'Connor, Cloris Leachman

It is the 1920s and Presidential Election Year in the United States. John P. Wintergreen's chances of being elected to the Presidency are slim, especially as he is unmarried. So a drastic remedy is decided on - a nationwide beauty contest, the winner to marry Wintergreen and become First Lady!
This artful and irreverent comedy about American politics dates from 1931, when it became the first musical show to win a Pulitzer Prize. Specially re-created in the election year, this new television production captures the true flavour of the 20s while still retaining a distinctly topical taste.

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.
