: Film 89

Barry Norman presents his personal review of the week's cinema releases.
Rain Man - Dustin Hoffman has the unusual role of an autistic man with a genius for mathematics. He has been in an institution for many years. Tom Cruise plays his brother who kidnaps him and takes him across America. Scandal - in 1963 John Profumo , the Minister for
War, was involved in a major controversy which involved a Russian diplomat and a 17-year-old 'call girl',
Christine Keeler. In this film, John Hurt plays
Stephen Ward , the society osteopath; Ian McKellen plays
John Profumo and Joanne Whalley plays Christine Keeler.
Dennis Quaid stars in D. O.A. which opens this week. He is now a much sought-after actor with successes including Suspect and The Big Easy. Film 89 talks to him about his career. Director DIANA HENRY Producer JANE LUSH

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.
