James Garner in The Real Easy Red
Dog Jim finds that the female of the ' private eye' species is more tricky than the male although easier on the eye when he takes on a case with more twists and turns, not to mention thrills, than a roller coaster.

: Taste for Adventure

Reporter at Risk
Catherine Lamour
Narrated by Jack Pizzey
CATHERINE LAMOUR is a young French journalist who took a film crew on a dangerous mission. Without passports, visas, or permission they penetrated deep into the heart of the jungle in South East Asia - to the Golden Triangle, the area bounded by the borders of China, Burma, Thailand and Laos. The film crew travelled into Burma under the protection of the Shan Liberation Army in a region dominated by rebellion, rival private armies, guerrilla warfare and local chiefs trading in arms, rubies, and, above all, opium. There they succeeded in filming the opium harvest: a caravan carrying three tons of opium, and the closely guarded refineries. But, for Catherine, the real success of her mission came when they succeeded in getting into the forbidden camps of the Chinese nationalists - the Kuomintang - and interviewing their General Tuan, the first to do so in over ten years.

Introduced by Humphrey Burton Stan Tracey Original
' One of the most gifted jazz musicians Britain has ever produced ' (BENNY GREEN) ' The best jazz pianist in Britain and one of the best anywhere '
(MILES KINGTON)
' One of the finest jazz composers in the world '
(HUMPHREY LYTTELTON)
A small sample of the accolades heaped on Stan Tracey , who was born on 30 December 1926, in South London. He still lives there.
Fame in jazz circles has brought him no fortune.
An entirely self-taught musician, he joined ENSA as an accordionist on his 16th birthday. At 18 he fell in love with jazz, graduated to the piano and set about mastering the crafts of composer and arranger.
"Of the 150 Tracey compositions, the most steadily popular has been his Jazz Suite inspired by Dylan Thomas 's Under Milk Wood.
In this film STAN TRACEY tells his own story, plays solo piano, duets with MIKE OSBORNE , and leads his quartet and his octet. He also gives us a glimpse of his teaching methods.

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.
