The Golden Striker. The disappearance of famous footballer Kenny Cooper known as the "Golden Striker" means a lot of trouble for his former Newcastle club.

: Film 92 with Barry Norman

A critical look at the week's cinema releases.
Barton Fink won an unprecedented three awards at last year's Cannes Film
Festival. Brothers Joel and Ethan Coen , who also directed Blood Simple, Raising Arizona and Miller's Crossing, have a decidedly quirky style of film making. Fink is a writer, seduced by an attractive
Hollywood film offer, who has to come to terms with writer's block in a most bizarre hotel. It stars John Turturro (who also won the award for best actor at
Cannes) and John Goodman.
For the Boys stars Bette Midler and James Caan , who also recently starred in the Oscar-winning film Misery, as a war-time entertainment act in a comedy drama of survival and sheer nostalgia.
Plus an Australian film,
Death in Brunswick, by the award-winning director
John Ruane. Sam Neill plays the part of a cook in a sleazy Melbourne rock'n'roll club.

Producer Bruce Thompson STEREO

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.
