: Barry Norman on Broadway

with Jim Dale, Christopher Reeve, Lauren Bacall, Nicol Williamson, Lumpy Goldberg, Joe Papp, Mayor Ed Koch, Priscilla Lopez, Fr George Moore, Clive Barnes, Ted Hook, John Simon, Curtis Sliwa and The Guardian Angels, The Ladies of the Cedarhurst Sephardic Temple
Broadway, the avenue, snakes through the length of Manhattan but it is the few hundred yards where it meets Times Square and bisects 42nd Street that inspired the numerous songs celebrating the most glamorous theatre district in the world. Barry Norman takes a wry look at Broadway today.
The glamour is still there: never more so than at the opulent first night supper for "The Pirates of Penzance" with Linda Ronstadt or at Milton Goldman's star-studded party. But Broadway is equally renowned for its drug pedlars and muggers, its strip joints and prostitutes.
Barry Norman encounters some of the characters who inhabit this remarkable square mile. Photography JOHN ELSE

: The Risk Business

Sink or Swim
Twenty million people cross the English Channel every year; tonight's programme is about the battle to grab a share of that lucrative market. The casualties are high; the price war that began last year, on top of the French fishermen's blockade, caused three companies to go bust and many others to lose money.
Kieran Prendiville tries to find out who started the price war-and looks at the future of the hovercraft, threatened by rising prices and predatory ferry companies. Michael Rodd talks to Michael Bosworth of British Rail about the Government's proposal to sell Sealink off to private business - and the possibility that it may fall into the hands of its biggest rival, European Ferries. And The Risk Business previews a brand new cut-price service starting in three weeks time which, its Scandinavian owners claim, will revolutionise the cross-channel experience.

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.
