Before Breakfast by ROBERT RUDELSON starring
Script editor, Derek Hoddinott
Designer, Evan Hercules
Two young Americans wake up in their flatlet in Notting Hill. This is their home, their world, their fantasy. Only the newspapers that litter the floor, and the television set standing in the corner tell them what is going on outside their existence. Like most of us, they have become immune to the realities of life.
Dean Stockwell , American star of such films as Compulsion and Sons and Lovers, was anxious to work in British television and came over specially for this play. Lelia Goldoni , star of John Cassa vetes' classic film, Shadows, married author Robert Rudelson only a few weeks ago.

: WHO IS ...

Victor Vasarely
A series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Written by MARK PEPLOE
Directed by Dick Fontaine and STEPHEN Milne
This Hungarian-born painter, now living in France, seeks an abstract art which tells no stories, holds no memories, and refers to nothing but itself. It is Vasarely's efforts to achieve such an art that have led him progressively from representational abstraction, through kinetic experiment, to the formulation of an abstract geometrical alphabet.

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.
