: From Here to Eternity

A Fred Zinnemann season starring Burt Lancaster
Montgomery Clift , Deborah Kerr Frank Sinatra , Donna Reed
Honolulu, in the summer of 1941. At the Schofield Barracks, army life proceeds as usual. Private Robert E. Lee Prewitt, a former champion amateur boxer, is being persecuted by his commanding officer Captain Holmes because he refuses to join the company's boxing team; Sergeant Warden embarks on an affair with Holmes's wife, Karen; and Prewitt's hot-headed friend, Maggio, makes a dangerous enemy of the sadistic
Sergeant ' Fatso ' Judson. Meanwhile, in Japan, a chain of events is about to be set in motion that will affect the lives of everyone.
Fred Zinnemann won the first of his two Academy Awards to date for his direction of this film which won eight Oscars in 1953 and became part of movie mythology.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
