: Charlie Chan in London

starring Warner Oland with Ray Milland , Alan Mowbray
'Difficult to catch fly with only one finger,' says Charlie Chan , enmeshed in baffling goings-on with the hunting set in exotic Albion. Pamela Gray convinces Chan that her brother Paul is not guilty of the murder for which he is to be hanged in a mere 65 hours. That is all the time our suave detective has to disentangle the real murderer from the dark figures lurking in the grounds of an English country estate.

: Year of the French

A calendar of French life in 12 film portraits
The Country Priest
The month: August
The man: Abbe Louis Mahuas The place: Brittany
LOUIS MAHUAS is a remarkable man. Parish priest of the village of Landaul, he ministers to the faithful - no more than ten at weekday Mass, a full church on Sundays. For 30 years he has enjoyed teaching science at the church school. A gregarious, cheerful man, he drinks with the villagers at the cafe; joins in a barbecue at the former rectory; encourages a lively lady of 93 to sing the old songs at her birthday party. But Fr Louis is even more Breton than French. The revival of his native Celtic language and culture is the passion of his life. And the villagers have caught his enthusiasm. In traditional Breton costume, they sing and dance at the rural fete which lasts all day and most of the night....

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.

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.
