: Hollywood Dream-Maker

Robert Stevenson
' Some people criticise me because I'm pleased that in the last 20 years my films have grossed somewhere around 200 million dollars, but ... I don't think that every picture should represent somebody's personal statement, unless you have a damn good personal statement to make.'
Measured by the box office, Robert Stevenson is the most successful director in Hollywood. More than a dozen of his films are among the biggest money-makers of all time. This programme traces his career from Tudor Rose in 1936. by way of Jane Eyre , Kidnapped and Mary Poppins , to One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing, 40 years later.

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.
