: The Kenny Everett Television Show

Written by RAY CAMERON
BARRY CRYER and KENNY EVERETT
This is Kenny Everett 's first show for the BBC and in it he will be doing several things we're not allowed to talk about and meeting several people we're not at liberty to divulge. The whole show is full of fantastic ingredients too numerous to describe. Suffice it to say everything will be completely original in as much as it's never been done before ... on the BBC. Join Kenny and the cast of thousands for the experience of a lifetime. Or, on the other hand, watch this show.

: The Poseidon Adventure

The feature film starring Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Carol Lynley, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens, Shelley Winters.
Heedless of mountainous seas and worsening weather, the passengers aboard the huge liner Poseidon celebrate New Year's Eve in the traditional fashion until their festivities are literally turned upside down. A freak wave has capsized the ship and for the small band of survivors of the initial disaster, the question is - can they escape from the floating death trap before it sinks to the bottom of the sea?

: Peace in No Man's Land

The story of the Christmas Truce Narrated by MARTIN JARVIS
On Christmas Eve 1914 on the Western Front, British and German soldiers sang carols to each other across a frosty, moonlit No Man's Land. The next morning, on Christmas Day, hundreds of men of both nations emerged from the trenches to talk, joke, take photographs and exchange souvenirs, in the most famous fraternisation of the First World War.
This remarkable event is remembered by three soldiers who took part: Graham Williams of the London Rifle Brigade; Leslie Walkinton of the Queen's Westminster Rifles and Albert Moren , of The Queen's Regiment.
And another truce of that war, on another front, is recalled by Dr Friedrich Kohn , former Medical Officer attached to the Hungarian Army.

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.
