: Cary Grant In Bringing Up Baby

continues a celebration for his forthcoming 80th birthday with Katharine Hepburn
This enchanting, crazy comedy is one of Howard Hawks's greatest triumphs and features Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in a perfectly matched relationship. David Huxley is a quiet Professor, dedicated to zoological research. He is content to live out his life among the dry bones and exhibits of pre-historic dinosaurs. But then he encounters society girl Susan Vance.
Screenplay by DUDLEY NICHOLS and HAGER WILDE Produced by CLIFF REID

: Schoolgirl Chums

by PETER GLIDEWELL
A jolly hockeysticks story of the 30s starring and featuring
When Colonel Dayne is drafted on a secret mission, his daughter Alison is forced to continue her education away from home for the first time. At her new boarding school she finds a life charged with unwelcome dramas and puzzling situations. Why is the second mistress so unfriendly? Why does her classmate, Maud, become such a sneak? And who are the strange 'foreign-sounding' gentlemen who dog her footsteps wherever she goes? The adorable Miss Devine has the answers-but only Alison's two new-found chums, Hil and Jen, can make the Christmas term at St Ursula's bearable.

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.
