: Jacques Tati -A Tribute

Monsieur Hulot 's Work
Jacques Tati , who died last month, ranks with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the greatest comedians of the cinema. His immortal creation, Monsieur Hulot , first seen in Monsieur Hulot 's Holiday, was to stumble and bumble for 30 years through an increasingly alien modern world, trailing in his wake his own unique brand of disruptive chaos. All Tati's five films are featured in this unique documentary, in which he talked to Gavin Millar about his work.

: The World About Us

Why is it that whales, dolphins and porpoises, accomplished swimmers and such sophisticated navigators and communicators, are sometimes found stranded, dead or alive, on the sea-shore?
Strandings occur worldwide and are more common around our shores than we might think: up to 80 strandings each year, especially between autumn and spring. For this reason alone we need to know more about these apparent mass suicides and, most important of all, to discover how we can help these magnificent creatures to return to the ocean.

: The Great American Picture Show: The Killer Elite

continues a major season of recent American movies, tonight starring James Caan , Robert Duvall
In San Francisco Com-Teg handles the jobs too dirty even for the CIA. One of their top men, Mike Locken , is deliberately shot and crippled on orders from his division chief. Mike refuses to accept his enforced retirement and struggles back to strength-with a revenge mission in mind. This characteristically cynical movie by director Sam Peckinpah enacts a vivid portrait of ' law and order' from behind the scenes. It builds up to a brilliantly staged climax where martial arts meet high technology weapons in one of the screen's most exciting battles.

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.
