: Americans: 8: The Private Eye

by Desmond Wilcox
Thirteen programmes which look at figures in an American landscape.
He's an ex-cop and a 'loner'. In the Yellow Pages John O'Grady describes himself quite simply as 'Hollywood's Number One Private Eye'. His office is on Sunset Boulevard- 'The Strip'. He drives a Cadillac, keeps a gun in his desk drawer, smokes 'Luckys' and dresses like his fictional counterparts. He was a detective with the Los Angeles Police Department and later was Head of the Hollywood Narcotics Division.
But times changed and the tough methods of John O'Grady went out of fashion. So O'Grady set himself up as a Private Eye, modelling himself on his fictional counterparts, because that's what his Hollywood clients expect - and pay for.

The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
The People of Glasgow's East End present
Every Town has an East End
' Press and television coverage of our area shows it as being full of alcoholics, vandals and criminals - no mention of a community. Sure we've got problems, but our area is going through massive changes, and we want a say in those changes. Our aims are basic. like the shops, open spaces, doctors and amenities that most people take for granted. We do have a community, and we want to tell you about it.'
Made by the people of Glasgow's East End with the help of the Community Programme Unit

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.

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