: Doris Day - I Don't Even Like Apple Pie ...

Doris Day was one of the most popular and influential movie stars of all time.
From the late 1940s to the late 1960s she played a wide variety of parts in musicals - It's Magic, Calamity Jane, Love Me or Leave Me, melodramas like - Pillow Talk, Teacher's Pet, Lover
Come Back and That Touch of Mink. Yet people tend to remember her for just one part, created in her earliest films, the all-American girl-next-door. She is still regarded as the 'perpetual virgin' or Miss Goody Two-Shoes, rather than as the resolute, independent heroine she really was on film and in her own life.
Christopher Frayling visits Doris Day in Carmel,
California, in search of the truth behind the image.
In a rare television interview, she looks back over her successful acting and singing career, and recalls happy memories of working with Rock Hudson , James Cagney , Clark Gable and James Garner. Editor RON RADDON

: Doris Day in Love Me or Leave Me

Beginning a short season of films featuring this delightful screen star. Also starring James Cagney
From Chicago dime-a-dance girl to singing sensation, Ruth Etting 's career and private life were dominated by the aggressive and possessive
Martin Snyder. This is their story, set against the backdrop of America in the Roaring 20s. James Cagney received an Oscar nomination for his powerful performance, and is well-matched by Doris Day as the singer whose life is marred by tragedy.

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.
