: Victor/Victoria

Starring Julie Andrews, James Garner, Robert Preston

This sparkling musical comedy from the creator of the Pink Panther movies is set in Paris during the 1930s. Victoria - a down-and-out singer - is trying to work the cabaret scene. By chance she meets Toddy, a gay and witty entertainer who knows his way around the city. He conceives a brilliant plan - to pass off Victoria as a female impersonator. Soon 'Victor/Victoria' is the toast of Paris. But complications arise - mainly in the shape of the handsome King....
Edwards's film combines slapstick, lavish musical numbers and outrageous satire in its portrait of 'gay Paree'.

: Saturday Movie Classic: A Matter of Life and Death

The first in a new season of acclaimed films introduced each week by Barry Norman starring David Niven Roger Livesey Kim Hunter squadron Leader Peter Carter should have been killed when he baled out - without a parachute - from a burning bomber over the Channel on 2 May 1945. But still alive after a miraculous escape and in love with a pretty American girl, he resists the summons of a hallucinatory
'messenger' to take his rightful place in the next world. While doctors fight to save his life, Peter undergoes an illusory trial in heaven where his appeal to remain on earth is heard ... This stunning fantasy, set partly on a Technicolor earth and partly in a black and white heaven was written, produced and directed by one of the most successful partnerships in British film history - that of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.
Written, produced and directed by MICHAEL POWELL and EMERIC PRESSBURGER
(To celebrate the 80th birthday of Michael Powell a season of his films begins next Saturday on BBC2)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
