Alan Skidmore is the son of one of the original post-war jazz musicians who made their mark in groups like those of John Dankworth and Humphrey Lyttelton , and has followed very much in his father's footsteps in attaining a reputation as a driving, forceful tenor saxophone player, although his style is, to say the least, updated. This year he and his Quintet were placed first in the International Jazz Festival held annually in Montreux, Switzerland. His partner in the front line is a brilliant trumpet and flugel horn player, Kenny Wheeler, a musician's musician.

Tonight's film in this season of outstanding films of the past ten years from the movie capital stars Shirley MacLaine, Laurence Harvey, Jack Hawkins

Produced by MGM in 1961, this unusual love story tells of the relationships of three people living in a remote part of northern New Zealand.
Shirley MacLaine makes a striking departure from her previous comedy roles to play a school teacher happy in her career but disturbed by the fear of accepting adult love.

: Europa

Hippies, Hell's Angels, Drop-outs, Mods, Rockers, Skinheads and Weathermen... a variety of names from a variety of countries changing year by year. But they all mean the same thing -the rebellious young. They also seem to be an aspect of our permissive Western Society. But tonight Europa takes a surprising look at what goes on in the countries behind what we used to call the Iron Curtain.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
