: Trouble Brewing

A feature film starring the popular Lancashire lad, George Formby also starring Googie Withers.
'I'm not as daft as I look', says George Gullip. George is a newspaper compositor, and also an amateur sleuth, so when the police are baffled by a gang of counter-feiters he devises an ingenious plan to trap the crooks...
Formby is in excellent form as the love-sick hero, and finds time to sing several songs - including 'Fanlight Fanny' - on the way to a hectic finale in a brewery.

Starring Carol Lynley, Dale Robinette
The tranquillity of a small American town is shattered when a truck crashes through a fence at a wildlife preserve. The animals, many of them dangerous, stampede through the gap, bringing terror and chaos to the community.

: Saturday Late Film: Steel Cowboy

starring James Brolin, Rip Torn
Clayton Pfanner is "The Steel Cowboy", a tough individualist born out of his time. In the harsh world of the 1970s Clayton and his pal and co-driver, K.W., find the going hard. Their massive truck - complete with leather interior, carpets and television - is their home and their "world". Unfortunately for Clayton a life of free-wheeling adventure doesn't pay the bills and a freight-racketeer, Pincus, persuades them to transport stolen cattle - with disastrous results for all concerned.

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.
