: Midweek Cinema: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

Starring Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston, Tim Holt, Bruce Bennett

Harold Evans has selected an adventure story of passion and conflict as his favourite film.
Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt give sterling performances as itinerant Americans caught up in the Mexican gold rush. But it was Walter Huston, the director's father, who won an Oscar for his role as the grizzled old prospector whose dour predictions come true.

: One Brick

Building a Future
A film made last month with a group of young Catholics and Protestants during a weekend away from
Belfast. All in their teens, they have, until recently, had little or no contact with the ' other side'. What's it been like, growing up during the troubles of the past ten years? How different are their problems compared to those of teenagers across the water? What about their new friendships and hopes for the future?
A small group of Catholics and Protestants spending the odd weekend away may seem like a drop in a troubled ocean, but as one 16-year-old put it '... you start building a house with one brick, you put one brick on top of the other. It starts off small and gets big with time.'
A Community Programme Unit production


Producer: Mike Bolland

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.
