: Great Ormond Street - A Fighting Chance

Until the middle of the last century, children were specifically banned from
Britain's hospitals for fear that they might be a cause of infection. In 1852 Great
Ormond Street opened its doors - the first hospital in this country founded especially to treat sick children. Martyn Lewis follows the daily triumphs and tragedies of the patients, parents and staff at this world-famous hospital. 'You cannot help being struck by the dedication of the nurses and doctors. The impact of their compassion for their young charges will stay with you for life.' Children arrive close to death in the hope that Great Ormond Street, which has pioneered so many medical breakthroughs in the past, will be able to offer them a future.
Now the future of Great Ormond Street itself is in jeopardy; the hospital is showing its age and must be rebuilt. The Prince and Princess of Wales, continuing a royal connection that began with Queen Victoria, are, as joint patrons of the hospital's Wishing Well
Appeal, leading the campaign to ensure that Great Ormond Street will be able to give many critically ill children at least - A Fighting Chance. Photography JIM PEIRSON Film editor DAVID THOMAS Producer TERENCE O'REILLY

: Films of the Year

Barry Norman has seen almost 200 films this year for Film 87 and, amazingly, he's survived the experience. As always, the films catered for a wide taste (or lack of...) - the comedy of Steve Martin , the violence of Lethal Weapon, the romance of 84 Charing Cross Road and the nostalgia of Hope and Glory. Will any of these feature in Barry's final choice? Will you agree with his selection? Watch the final take of Film 87, as the cameras prepare to roll for Film 88.

: Movie Classic: On the Waterfront

Marlon Brando
Eva Marie Saint
Karl Maiden
Terry Malloy , an ex-boxer, protected by his brother Charlie, hangs around New York's dockland
'working' as a strong-arm man for the corrupt leader of the dockers' union. When his friend is murdered, Terry reveals a dawning sense of personal responsibility through his love for the dead man's sister. Marlon Brando received one of this powerful film's eight Academy Awards for his portrayal of the man whose personal rebellion changes the tyrannical work system. The film, shot entirely on location in New
York, proved one of the most influential - and controversial - movies of its decade.
Screenplay by BUDD SCHULBERG Produced by SAM SPIEGEL Directed by EUA KAZAN

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.
