European reporters look at the pressures and the tempo of day-to-day life - and how they affect a factory worker in Holland, a housewife in Yugoslavia and Cabinet Ministers in the West German parliament.
Introduced by Derek Hart.
The first of two films by Jean Cocteau, one of France's most imaginative film-makers and man of letters.
Starring Jean Marais, Josette Day.
Jean Cocteau's imaginative and individual fantasy based on the famous fairy story, "Beauty and the Beast", remains a remarkable visual experience.
Magnificently designed by Christian Berard, it stars Jean Marais, who appeared in four Cocteau films, as all three main male characters - Avenant, the Beast, and the Prince.
Based on a tale by Madame Le Prince de Beaumont

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
