: Jane Fonda

' There I was, with everything privilege can bring, feeling dead inside and somehow very old in my young skin ...'
Last year a BBC team made a documentary with Jane Fonda while she was making Julia and two other American features. They filmed her family, social and political activities and obtained Jane's own account of how she came to break with her Hollywood background.
She describes her relationship with her father, her rise from the all-American ingénue to her role as an international sex queen and an Americanised version of Vadim's first wife, Brigitte Bardot. She describes how she became uncomfortable with her sex-kitten role and how she came to oppose the war in Vietnam.
The film's focus is the contradictions and controversies which she has had to resolve in her private life and in her career as an actress. It includes Henry Fonda 's own film footage of scenes from her Hollywood childhood, clips from her rare documentaries and interviews with Jon Voight and her second husband Tom Hayden.

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.
