: Kind Hearts and Coronets

starring Alec Guinness Dennis Price
Joan Greenwood
This film, one of the greatest of all British movies and an unusually black Ealing comedy, is famous for
Alec Guinness 's portrayal of eight contrasting characters.
Equally memorable is Dennis Price as Louis, a lowly member of the noble
D'Ascoyne family, who decides to avenge himself for their treatment of his mother and rises to become the Duke of Chalfont. His plan is simple - to murder each member of the family who stands between him and the coveted title.

: Mr Wrong

starring
Heather Bolton David Letch.
When Meg buys a vintage Mark 4 Jaguar she hopes for a comfortable ride and security on the roads.
Unfortunately the car has other ideas and a dark history that gradually drives the young girl to breakdown point. Not only has she
'inherited' the vehicle but also its memory of the strangled body left in the boot - and the sadistic killer who is still on the prowl ... This thriller, also known as Dark of the Night, marked the feature debut of former documentary film-maker Gaylene Preston.

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.

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.
