: The Tuesday Film: Journey from Darkness

starring
Marc Singer and Kay Lenz
Tonight's film is a true story of tremendous personal courage and dedication. Though blind since childhood, David Hartman is determined to study medicine. His ambition is to become a psychologist specialising in the problems of disabled people. David's room-mate at college is sometimes exasperated by his apparently impossible ambition; his teachers are sceptical; his parents feel the task is too difficult. But this moving and inspiring film shows how David succeeded against all odds.
Screenplay by PEGGY CHANTLER DICK Produced by TOM EGAN and STEPHEN POULIO Directed by JAMES GOLDSTONE

: Best of British: 1: Elton John in Captain Fantastic and the DJ

Ten programmes celebrating areas of excellence in the British arts.
Elton John dominated the 70s as one of the most successful singer/songwriters of all time. Disc jockey Paul Gambaccini went to meet the pop star at his English home where, surrounded by art treasures, he discusses his music, his close relationship with lyricist Bernie Taupin, and the strains and pressures of his career. Elton also sings new songs, including one set to John Donne's poem "No Man is an Island", and attends one of the most bizarre parties the House of Commons has ever seen.

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.
