: Saturday Cinema Song of the Islands

starring
Betty Grable , Victor Mature Jack Oakie
Betty Grable , pin-up queen of the forties, stars in this light-hearted blend of comedy, music, and romance. A slender plot about two Americans who land on a Pacific island, mistaking the delectable Miss Grable for one of the native girls, provides a framework to support some spectacular dance numbers staged by Hermes Pan.
Produced by WILLIAM LE BARON Directed by WALTER LANG

: Rugby Special

Introduced by CLIFF MORGAN
The South African Tour of the British Isles 1969-70
Midland Counties (East) v South Africa
This match will provide the Sixth Springboks with the strong opposition of a representative fifteen drawn from the wealth of Rugby Union talent of Leicestershire, the East Midlands, Notts, Lines, and Derby.
During the last Springboks tour Midland Counties (East) drew 3-3 with the tourists, and back in 1931 they were the only team to beat the South Africans. Their squad includes players like Budge Rogers from Bedford, Bob Taylor at number 8, Brian West, David Powell , and skipper Pat Briggs.

: One Pair of Eyes

Can you speak Venusian? asks astronomer Patrick Moore in this series of highly personal films
For more than 12 years Patrick Moore has been putting forward the conventional views of modern astronomy in books and on television. Next week he will be back in the space studio reporting on the Apollo 12 moon landing. But tonight he steps off that platform .to question whether orthodox views should be as readily accepted as they are.
Is the sun really a hot flaming body dashing about the sky? Have astronauts really proved that the earth and the moon are round? Might not the universe be enclosed by a giant magnet? Is not the ultimate man already living on Saturn in the form of an incandescent egg, 40-feet tall.
These ideas and more are put forward in a cheerful, convincing, and fearless way by a number of ' independent thinkers.' Patrick Moore feels that the conventionalists (and he includes himself) would do well to listen to their ideas and at least to emulate their outlook on life.

: Review

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
Writers in Revolt: Throughout history writers have challenged the beliefs and conventions of the society in which they have lived. In so doing they have often risked imprisonment, exile, or death.
What is the position of the writer in the Soviet Union today in this respect? In the week of the anniversary of the Revolution Review is devoted to this subject.
The novelist Anatoli Kuznetsov, who fled from the Soviet Union to England this summer, talks to James Mossman about the position of the writer in Soviet society. Poems, extracts from novels, and statements by Russian writers and officials are read by CHRISTOPHER BIDMEAD , PETER COPLEY ROSALIE CRUTCHLEY , COLIN DOUGLAS MARGERY MASON

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.
