: Hollywood in the Sixties The Ugly American

Tonight's film in this season of outstanding films of the past 10 years from the movie capital stars Marlon
Brando Brando , perhaps Hollywood's greatest acting discovery of the fifties, plays Harrison Carter MacWhite, America's new and inexperienced ambassador to a South-East Asian state. MacWhite's failure to distinguish between the desire for independence and Communist infiltration almost involves his own country in a major confrontation.

: Europa

Perhaps never since the Reformation has the Christian religion passed through such a traumatic time as the last 12 months. Roman Catholic priests openly defying their bishops over the Pope's ruling on birth control; another revolt over the celibacy of the priesthood. The Church's year of change as seen by the cameras of European TV.

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.
