: Maryland

A feature film starring
Walter Brennan , Fay Bainter Brenda Joyce , John Payne
Following the death of her husband in a riding accident, strongwilled Charlotte Danfield orders the horse shot and her famous stables closed. She becomes a near recluse at the vast estate in Maryland. But she reckons without her young son's instinct for horses and the tenacity of her former trainer, William, who enters a magnificent horse in the Maryland Hunt Cup - and provides a thrilling climax to the story.

: Little Big Man

The feature film starring
Dustin Hoffman Fayc Dunaway
Meet Jack Crabb , pioneer, adopted Indian, drunk, con-artist and adventurer. At 121 years of age he is all set to tell of his life and times, and of the West as it really was. Most importantly, of the climax of his adventures as the only white survivor at the infamous Battle of the Little Bighorn where General Custer led his forces into a massacre. Custer is portrayed as a ruthless megalomaniac in this sprawling, epic movie which combines comedy and tragedy in its story of the emergence of the West. Dustin Hoffman gives his most extraordinary performance in the title role-playing Crabb from teenager to the 121-year-old storyteller.

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.
