: Girl with Green Eyes

Tonight's film in this season of British films by some of the distinguished directors and writers who brought a new style to the cinema in the 60s stars Peter Finch, Rita Tushingham
with Lynn Redgrave

Young Kate Brady leaves her father's farm in County Clare to take her first job in Dublin - and a first taste of freedom. A chance meeting with a middle-aged writer, Eugene Galliard, promises to fulfil all Kate's dreams of romance.
Rita Tushingham, who had made a brilliant film debut in 1961 in A Taste of Honey, plays Kate in this gentle story of a young girl's emergence into womanhood, adapted by Edna O'Brien from her novel The Lonely Girl.

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.
