A musical extravaganza embodying all the spectacular showmanship which symbolised the name of Ziegfeld: sumptuous sets and costumes, beautiful girls, and a series of star turns.
MGM followed their successful film biography, The Great Ziegfeld, with this spectacular revue which opens with the great show-man in Heaven, recalling his past successes and planning just one more, even greater show, including Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly in a Gershwin number; bathing-star Esther Williams in a fantastic under-water ballet; and Judy Garland in a burlesque of a Hollywood star.

A Personal Statement by Milton Friedman 4: Created Equal
Wherever the free market has been permitted to operate, the ordinary man has been able to attain levels of living never dreamed of before,' says Professor Milton Friedman. 'Nowhere are the rich richer and the poor poorer, than in those societies that do not permit the free market to operate.' In a special film report MILTON FRIEDMAN argues his case that if society puts equality before freedom, then one ends up with neither. And in the studio, Peter Jay chairs a discussion between Milton Friedman and Nigel Law son, MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Neil Kinnock and Professor Maurice Peston.

: Midnight Movie: Zabriskie Point

Mark Frechette , Daria Halprin and Rod Taylor
Fleeing from the police after a campus riot, Mark, a Los Angeles student, steals a small private plane and directs his course out across the Arizona desert. His path crosses that of Daria, a liberated young woman on her way to a new job. The two young people begin a strange, eventful odyssey across the country.
Like all Antonioni's work Zabriskie Point is a highly-personal, demanding film, an uncompromising, frank look at rebellious American youth in the psychedelic 60s.

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.
