: Money Programme Special

The second of three programmes lieds in the Red
A report by Paul Barry with Brian Widlake and Valerie Singleton Poland is bankrupt and short of food and raw materials. The Soviet grain harvest has failed for the fourth year in a row. The Romanians cannot meet their debt repayments to the West. In short, Comecon is in trouble, not least because almost all credit from the West has been cut off.
Will this crisis force the Communist countries to reform, like Hungary, or push them back into the arms of Russia? And can the West influence them by giving or withholding technical help and money?

: Starring Rod Steiger: The Lucky Star

continues a season of films featuring one of the screen's most powerful actors
Tonight with Louise Fletcher
' I may bite the dust but you can't kill what I stand for in this town. That lives on for ever.' Young David hurls these defiant words-taken from his favourite Western -at the Nazis who control the small Dutch village where he is hiding. But tragically his world of movies and fantasies is far removed from the realities of war and persecution ... This is the British premiere of a Canadian film, in which Steiger gives a brilliant performance as Colonel Gluck, the kidnap victim of the town's young ' Sheriff' who wears his obligatory Yellow Star with a mixture of pride and innocence.
It is charming, heart-tugging, handsomely photographed like a series of Dutch paintings, and smoothly acted and directed (variety) Produced by CLAUBE LEGER

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.
