: High Hopes

A film about children who want to perform and the parents who encourage them.
At the London audition for the screen musical Annie, 2,000 little girls turned up. One was 11-year-old MARSHA ANNE BLAND, Whose dream is 'to share the stage with Frank Sinatra. '
The five-year-old Haley twins are in a new spy film. They call acting 'pretend.' But 15-year-old DEXTER FLETCHER is an old hand-Baby Face in Bugsy Malone , Puck at Glyndebourne.
THE SINGERS are named after their parents' boarding-house in Margate. They made a record called Ginger Tom and perform it in unusual places ...
The rewards are glamour, fame, perhaps even Hollywood. Will all their dreams come true? Or are they just High Hopes?

If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,

But life goes on, So sing as well. (JOYCE GRENFELL )

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.
