The Last Moguls
Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus know how to make films the paying public Wants to see.
Golan is an ex-fighter pilot. Globus a former cinema
Projectionist. Seven years ago, they arrived in Hollywood from Israel almost Penniless. Together they now run Cannon, the largest independent film production company in the world, and owner of most of the cinemas in London's West End. This month they paid E175 million for the ABC cinema chain and Elstree Studios.
Dismissed by some as 'schlockmeisters' interested only in action, violence and Profit, Golan and Globus are admired by others as true cineastes and the architects of a new order in Hollywood film production. Writers, actors and directors like Norman Mailer.
Franco Zeffirelli , John Cassavetes John Frankenheimer.
Alan Bates , Julie Andrews
Charles Bronson , Lee Marvin Jean-Luc Godard , and martial arts hero Chuck Norris , are queuing to work with Cannon.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
