: Flesh and Blood

The voices are unmistakable. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, two names that are synonymous with Hammer horror films, team up again after 21 years to narrate this two-part documentary celebrating the famous "fear factory".
Raquel Welch, who got her first big break in the Hammer production "One Million Years BC", gives a rare interview, as do many other celebrities, directors, producers, special-effects experts and composers, all of whom talk about Hammer's influence on both British and American cinema.
There is also some rarely seen footage from a US TV pilot film of Frankenstein and a 'home movie' taken at Bray Studios during the production of Dracula, Prince of Darkness, as well as clips from early Hammer films such as the production "Mystery of the Marie Celeste" with Bela Lugosi.
The wonderful theatrical trailers advertising the films get dusted off, too: "They really sum up the hype that was so much a part of Hammer," says director Ted Newsom. "For all the production value and terrific acting, they were still designed as popular entertainments."

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
