Tonight: The Celluloid Tycoon
In May this year Bryan Forbes - actor, screenwriter, director - suddenly and surprisingly landed the biggest job in the British film industry as Chief Executive of Associated British Picture Corporation.
He inherited the down-at-heel Elstree studios and a daunting financial task: to revitalise an ailing industry. It didn't seem to daunt him that in personal terms his income dropped from £100,000 a film to a salary of about £35,000 a year. Why? What made Bryan Forbes, born John Clarke 43 years ago in the East End of London, switch to the executive suite? He's a restless, pacing, chain-smoking man, hardly suited to a desk job or concerning himself with the minutiae of studio management: how many packets of crisps in the canteen vending machine? As a young actor he played gunners and cowards; deemed 'not officer material.' It's a long trek from the lower deck to the boardroom. What drives him? And what does the future hold for him and the industry?
Director JAMES KENELM CLARKE Edited by DESMOND wh.cox and BILL MORTON

If the family cat takes a dislike to you, even bites you, there is nothing at all to be done about it. Protest is futile. Everyone will side with Pussy. If, driven to desperate measures, you plan to dispose of the creature - beware.

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.
