The last in the present series Sir Gordon Richards - Jockey
When Gordon Richards rode Pinza to victory in the 1953 Derby the nation sighed with relief. After all, this most prodigious jockey had won more races than any Briton before or since, but not once in 30 attempts had he finished first in the ' blue riband ' of the turf.

: Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot

continues a season of feature films starring Hollywood's legendary actress. Also starring Tony Curtis
Jack Lemmon
It's Chicago 1,929-the pre-depression, flapper era dominated by prohibition hot music and tough racketeers. When Joe and Jerry, two under-employed musicians witness "the St Valentine's Day massacre, they nearly become' victims themselves. The only escape is a jazz band heading for Florida. With Curtis and Lemmon in drag, joining Marilyn - a tipsy, ukulele-playing singer in an all-girl band-this spoof gangster movie rapidly becomes one of Holly-wood's most inventive comedies.

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.
