: Saturday Cinema: Tammy Tell Me True

Starring Sandra Dee, John Gavin
An attractive adolescent from the southern backwoods, Tammy has the engaging qualities of naivety and directness - the epitome of the youthful American heroine whose antecedents stretch back directly to Mary Pickford.
In this film Tammy determines on a reunion with her boyfriend at college, and decides to get herself an education - but in the end she teaches her tutors a few things.

: Black Roots: Voices and Music of Black America

In a New York basement a group of black Americans talk and sing about their lives, about the experiences that shaped their attitudes. Outside on the streets of Harlem you can see the faces of a new generation of black Americans and hear the music of Memphis Slim, Leadbelly and Jimi Hendrix

This latest film by the director of On the Bowery and Come Back Africa has been acclaimed as 'a valuable contribution to the pitifully small supply of films which treat with any integrity the black experience in America.'

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.
