: The Levin Interviews

Bernard Levin talks to the philosopher Sir Isaiah Berlin who has been described as ' one of the diamond mines of our generation '. Berlin abandoned pure philosophy after the last war in favour of the history of ideas, on the grounds that he preferred ' a field in which one could hope to know more at the end of one's life than when one had begun'.

: Charles Laughton in This Land is Mine

also starring Maurcen O'Hara with George Sanders , Walter Slezak , Kent Smith , Una O'Connor One of Laughton's best films of the 40s in which he stars as Albert Lory , a timid schoolteacher living with his mother in a small town recently occupied by the Germans. Arrested for a murder he did not commit. Lory shows unexpected courage in pleading his own defence and denouncing his collaborationist countrymen.

: Forty Minutes

Mr Moonlight
They wanted to make him the next Sinatra. They flew him to America to co-star with Marilyn Monroe. In only two years Frankic Vaughan was back. But the Britain he'd conquered in the 50s was now the Britain of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Yet his hard-core fans stayed faithful. Frankie survived and, 20 years on, is the elder statesman of pop. This is a profile of Frankie and his wife Stella: of the crises in their lives, and their day-to-day existence that moves between a comfortable North London home, to fan clubs in the Midlands and to the boys' clubs to which his commitment is close and constant. Finally there is the stage, where his star burns as brightly as ever as he croons his repertoire of evergreens. ' Give him the moonlight, give him the girl, and leave the rest ... to him.

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.
