: The Epic that Never Was

starring Charles Laughton
Merle Oberon , Flora Robson Emlyn Williams
In 1937 shooting began at Denham Studios on the late Sir Alexander Korda 's epic to dwarf all epics, 1, Claudius, from the book by Robert Graves. From the outset the production was hampered by difficulties and the film was finally abandoned when MERLE OBERON was badly injured in a car crash. The story of the frustration behind Korda's greatest gamble is told by Dirk Bogarde , with contributions from Joseph von Sternberg
Robert Graves , Eileen Corbett John Armstrong
CHARLES LAUGHTON , who starred as Claudius, greeted the cancellation of the film with great relief; ironically, since surviving sequ. ences and rushes show that this would have been one of his greatest accomplishments.

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.
