: Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch

opens a season of films starring Hollywood's legendary actress.
Also starring Tom Ewell with Evelyn Keyes, Sonny Tufts
Billy Wilder's screen version of George Axelrod 's famous comedy firmly established Marilyn as a major star and sex symbol. She displays an enormous talent for comedy as 'The girl' who rents an apartment upstairs from a middle-aged business executive and who innocently becomes the object of his sexual fantasies. In the role he originally created on Broadway, Tom Ewell is at his deadpan best as the grass widower with the 'itch' for infidelity.

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.
