Achievement ... Happiness. Tragedy ... Stress ...
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives

This week:
HENRY HIGGINS-BULLFIGHTER
Cruel to whom?—animal or man? Each year more and more British people, holidaying in the sun, witness for the first time a traditional Spanish spectacle which supporters claim reflects not only national attitudes to courage, skill, and honour but can be calmly accepted at this level without being influenced by its inevitable outcome -the death of the bull in front of the crowd. But to many, if not most, this is a barbaric and brutal display in which a dumb animal is tortured to death. A display in which the spectators diminish their (,wn human dignity by watching a nauseous ritual which owes more to the bloodstained heritage of the early Roman arenas than to a lethal contest which its supporters even go so far as to call an art form.
Henry Higgins is a twenty-four-year-old Englishman, and a bullfighter. Some aficionados (the word for bullfight fans) say he'll be a good one. He has been gored, tossed, and nearly killed. In turn he has already ritually finished off hundreds of four-year-old Spanish fighting bulls His whole life is devoted to bullfighting; both in and out of the bull ring.
Man Alive film cameras set out to discover what sort of man he is, what sort of world he lives in. And in the studio we ask cruel to whom? '

The contrast between their antagonistic day-to-day existence and the idyllic correspondence provides many opportunities for Miss Garland's comic talent and she is ably supported by Van Johnson.

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.
