[Starring] William Boyd as Hopalong Cassidy

: Panique

The famous French film directed by Julien Duvivier, with Michel Simon and Viviane Romance.
The film is a brilliant example of French production and the final sequence where an innocent man is chased by the crowd is particularly outstanding.

: Gay Rosalinda

Adapted and produced by Henry Caldwell
Music by Johann Strauss

The scene opens in Vienna in the comparative tranquillity of the Eisenstein residence. Complications arise at the ball in Prince Orlofsky's palace, but these are happily disposed of later - in the town gaol!
The general gaiety is interrupted for five-minute entr'actes before and after the ball.

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

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.
