: Star Movie: You Never Can Tell

starring
Dick Powell , Peggy Dow with Charles Drake , Joyce Holden
King, a german shepherd dog, is willed six million dollars by his eccentric owner. Ellen Hathaway , the beautiful private secretary to the deceased millionaire, is named as trustee and recipient of the fortune in the event of King's death. Not surprisingly, she becomes dogged by fortune hunters who would rather see King out of the way ... Dick Powell stars as Rex Shepherd - without doubt his most unusual screen role - in this ingeniously funny film.

Nearly 10,000 dogs compete for the title of Supreme Champion 1982. Each dog already has to be a champion, or to have qualified at a championship show last year, just to enter this competition and try to take the title - won last year by an Irish setter.

The Cline Affair
At eight o'clock on 10 July 1980, a Los Angeles doctor walked into a hospital in Jerusalem. The doctor, Martin Cline , had with him phials containing human genes grown up in bacteria-genes that he hoped might save a 21-year-old Israeli girl with only a few years to live. He was about to perform the first genetic engineering experiment ever on a human being. Cline might have believed that it would earn him a place of honour in medical history. Yet a storm of controversy surrounds the experiment. Many scientists fear this shot in the dark was premature and has done more harm than good.
So was Cline justified in going ahead? What happened to him-and to the patient?

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.
