: Mentioned in Dispatches

Arena presents the extraordinary story of Tim Page, war photographer and Vietnam legend-a tale first told in MICHAEL HERR'S celebrated book about Vietnam, Dispatches.
'People made Page sound crazy and ambitious, like the Sixties Kid, a stone-cold freak in a country where the madness raced up the hills and into the jungles ... he'd picked up a camera the way you or I would pick up a ticket, but he would go places for pictures that very few other photographers were going.'
Page was wounded four times in Vietnam. The fourth and final time, he was logged ' dead on arrival'. But he survived against all the odds. Tonight he tells . his story.

: Midweek Musical: Damn Yankees

(What Lola Wants) starring
Tab Hunter
Gwen Verdon Ray Walston
This American reworking of the Faust legend into the story of the baseball fan who made a pact with the devil, became a highly successful Broadway musical.
Joe Boyd , a middle-aged business-man, would give anything to see the Washington Senators win the coveted pennant from the Yankees baseball team. When an elegant stranger offers him just that, it is an offer Joe cannot refuse - but he has not been selling insurance for 20 years without learning a trick or two himself.
Music and lyrics by RICHARD ADLER and JERRY ROSS Produced and directed by STANLEY DONEN and GEORGE ABBOTT Films: page 23

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.
