Katharine Hepburn Humphrey Bogart
Lady Antonia Fraser has chosen a romantic adventure story as her kind of movie. Humphrey Bogart won an Oscar for his performance as the boozy boat captain who is astonished to find that he has fallen in love with a prim, indomitable spinster and is driven by her to conduct a one-man war against the Germans in East Africa when war is declared.

: Open Door

The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
Action in Distress presents
Every Child Deserves a Chance
What does it mean to be a ' postal parent' to a boy or girl in one of the world's poorer countries?
This year is the United Nations International Year of the Child, and this programme illustrates a simple but unique way in which concerned people in Britain can do something positive to help one individual needy child. In the process, they learn and benefit too!
VALERIE SINGLETON and POLLY JAMES are among the sponsors who have helped to make this programme, to show how individuals and groups in this country are taking an active interest in the lives and problems of children in the Third World, helping them to help themselves.
Made 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.
