Previously shown on Boxing Day, this programme is based on Jack London's dramatic short story about a man facing the terrifying prospect of freezing to death. His only companion is a wild husky dog as he walks through the beautiful Arctic snowscape.
The year is 1898, the time of the Gold Rush, and the scene the Klondike where ' no man should travel alone when it's 50 below.' For this man, his very life hung on his ability To Build a Fire. The Storyteller Orson Welles The Chechaquo Ian Hogg The Husky Dog PEPPER
In its own right a minor master-piece (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

: Midnight Movie: Stand-in

Starring Leslie Howard, Joan Blondell, Humphrey Bogart
Films about Hollywood are never less than fascinating. Stand-In, the story of a young accountant's attempts to put an ailing studio back on its feet (featuring Leslie Howard as the accountant, Humphrey Bogart as the studio's executive producer, and Joan Blondell as a secretary) presents a particularly satirical view of the film capital.

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.
