"Before I'm through with you you're gonna move like one man and think like one man," declares Sergeant Stryker to his young recruits in this stirring account of the Pacific war. The heroic attack by the Marines on the strongly defended island of Iwo Jima affirms the integrity of the tough sergeant, with Wayne giving one of the finest performances of his career.

: Whicker's World: Living with Waltzing Matilda

The first of ten films in Australia's bicentennial year. Alan Whicker talks to a cross-section of enterprising Poms who have gone to live and work Down Under.
Dorrie Flatman left Liverpool in 1963 with three daughters and £45. Today she is one of Australia's wealthiest women.
Dorrie is a brothel madam. She has three flourishing businesses and the firm conviction that business is best kept in the family. So while she manages one 'house', her daughter oversees the house opposite, and her ex-babysitter from Kirkby, the branch brothel in Fremantle. The books are meticulously kept by Dorrie's husband, an accountant 21 years her junior.
Had Dorrie plied her trade in Britain, she would have ended up in jail. But this is Perth, Western Australia, in some ways astonishingly permissive, where licensed brothels are illegal, but 'tolerated'.

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.
