: Hollywood Star Parade: What Price Glory

Starring James Cagney, Corinne Calvet, Dan Dailey
John Ford's remake of a World War I story which had already been a highly successful film of the silent era.

Dan Dailey and James Cagney play two hard-boiled professional soldiers given the job of making fighting men of the callow youths arriving in France. Captain Flagg and Sergeant Quirt are old sparring partners, perpetually at each other's throat, yet loving to hate each other.
Both Cagney and Dailey came from a background of vaudeville dancing and both have made their names largely in straight dramatic roles - although Cagney won an Oscar for his performance in Yankee Doodle Dandy.

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.

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.
