Eudora Welty: a Writer's Beginnings
This film retraces the path one writer took to discover the world in which she lives. One of the most entertaining and evocative of America's
Writers, Pulitzer Prize winner Eudora Welty has lived, a White southerner, in Jackson, Mississippi for nearly 80
Years, and her stories and novels come from a lifetime's observation of the people and Places of her native state. In 1984 she wrote her remarkable memoir, One
Writer's Beginnings, which became a huge success in the US, topping the New York Times bestseller list for 46 Weeks. The book, and this film which follows it, is about childhood, about family relationships, about memory; above all, though, it is about the making of a fiction writer.

: Burt Reynolds in Lucky Lady

The last in a short series of films featuring the Hollywood star. Tonight with Liza Minnelli, Gene Hackman.

Spirited humour, fast action and adventure abound in this lively tale of a lawless era. The year is 1930. Liza Minnelli plays a lady of glittering fashions, high financial ambitions and unusual romantic arrangements. Burt Reynolds and Gene Hackman are her adopted partners in business and in love. In their sloop, Lucky Lady, they ply the Mexican and Californian coast, smuggling illicit booze to slake the thirst of prohibition America....

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.
