: Chronicle

The Road to Happiness
Narrated by RENÉ CUTFORTH
On 1 October 1908, the first Model T motor car was delivered to the buyer. Homely as a mule and useful as a pair of shoes.' Seventy years later, as a result of strikes at Dagenham, there were no cars on the Ford Stand at the Birmingham Motor Show -except the Model T. Does the responsibility for some of the industry's current industrial problems lie in the history of the company and the temperament of the man who founded it - Henry Ford ?
This programme tells the story of Ford who, in 1911, built Highland Park, Detroit-the largest factory in the world. The man who introduced the production line and who set out with the humanitarian ideal of producing cheap cars for the people and ended up defying his own striking workers. Ford seemed to embody the American dream but bequeathed to the world, in many people's opinion, a nightmare legacy.

: Lady in the Lake

continues the season of films from the writings Of RAYMOND CHANDLER starring Robert Montgomery Audrey Totter
In this third 'Marlowe' thriller, Chandler's detective is played-and directed - by Robert Montgomery in one of the most unusual films ever made. The central character is depicted subjectively by the movie-camera, so the ace detective is only seen in reflection. Even so, it does not stop Marlowe being involved in plenty of complicated and exciting adventures, attempting to unravel the mystery of the lady found wet - and very dead - in the lake.
Screenplay by STEVE FISHER
Based on the novel by RAYMOND CHANDLER Produced by GEORGE HAIGHT

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.
