: The Tuesday Film: The Boy Friend

starring Twiggy
Christopher Gable
In this homage to the Hollywood musical, director Ken Russell has transformed Sandy Wilson 's hit stage musical into a delightful, tongue-in-cheek spectacular.
Twiggy, in her first screen role, stars as young Polly Browne , the nervous assistant stage manager and dogsbody of a tattered provincial company in the 20s. When the leading lady fails to turn up, Polly suddenly finds herself the star of the show!
Based on the musical play by SANDY WILSON
Written, produced and directed by KEN RUSSELL. Films: page 23

: Best of British

Ten programmes celebrating areas of excellence in the British arts. 9: Jane Bown
JANE BOWN would be the last person to call herself the best of British photographers: ' What do they say nowadays - I'm not really into photography,' she says modestly. Into it or not, she merits a current exhibition — The Gentle Eye - at the National Portrait Gallery, a review of her classic work for the Observer over 30 years. Everything, from pumpkins to prime ministers, has been her brief, and we watch her at home and away encountering among others the exotic J.R., his mother Mary Martin , and our own home-grown star Arthur Askey.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
