: The Jazz Age

An American view of the Roaring Twenties.

Produced as part of the film documentary series "Project 20" for the National Broadcasting Company.

"The Jazz Age" was the term F. Scott Fitzgerald gave to the Roaring Twenties in America. This television documentary programme, made by the producer and team which made Victory At Sea, and the documentary about the Atom Bomb, Three, Two, One-Zero, is a reconstruction of the decade from the Peace Treaty of Versailles in 1919 to the Wall Street crash in 1929. It shows America and Americans undergoing perhaps the most profound change in morals and manners of their entire history. It shows the coming of Prohibition and the flapper, the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, the speak-easies, and the rise of the gangster.

The film recalls the excitement of Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight across the Atlantic and shows the tumultuous scenes as New York welcomed him back again. It revives pictures of Presidents Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. It draws on film footage from archives both private and public. The musical score recalls the popular tunes of the 'twenties.
This film is part of the Project 20 programme launched by the National Broadcasting Company.

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.
