John Ford
Conclusion of the two-part profile, which is accompanied by a BBCtv season of the American director's movies.
His work is often characterised by a love of wide open spaces such as Monument Valley in Arizona and a vivid evocation of the epic spirit that helped to build America.
After the Second World War,
Ford continued his remarkable career with films such as They Were Expendable, My Darling Clementine, the famous
"cavalry trilogy" and The Quiet
Man, for which he won yet another Oscar.
British film director and Ford expert Lindsay Anderson , who narrates the programme, gives his own critical appraisal and discusses his long friendship with a man he describes as "one of the great poets of humanity in our time".
James Stewart ,
Maureen O'Hara , Benjohnson, Harry Careyjr and grandson and biographer Dan Ford are among those who talk about Ford's later career.

: King Kong

Tonight's Movie
Classic is the restored version of the great monster movie, starring Fay Wray Robert Armstrong Bruce Cabot
The original King Kong, with its stunning stop motion animation by Willis O'Brien , is the one that set the standards by which all fantasy films are now judged. Kong is the giant gorilla brought back from the jungle as a "side-show" attraction. When he escapes into the streets of Manhattan, it seems nothing can stop him.

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.
