: The African Queen

The famous feature film starring Humphrey Bogart

Bogart won an 'Oscar' for his performance in this classic movie.

: Forty Minutes: The Mating Season

Forty Minutes of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals.
County Clare in the South-West of Ireland - rugged community ot fishermen and farmers, and very, very few women. Chicago, Illinois sophisticated, cosmopolitan - and, it seems, short of eligible bachelors.
What more natural than a pilgrimage from Chicago to the tiny spa village of Lisdoonvarna, where during September the farmers come down from the hills and the fishermen come in from the sea for what the Irish call 'the crack' - a rare blend of dancing and drinking, and perhaps a little romancing. At the centre sits the Matchmaker, with his ledger of secrets, pages of names and hidden yearnings. On one page is the name of Willie Brophy. Willie has not come in search of love. He wants a wife, and in five years his annual pilgrimage of hope has yielded little. Perhaps on that coachload of Chicagoan ladies there will be that certain someone....
Perhaps an enchanted week in Lisdoonvarna's ballrooms of romance will make all his dreams come true....

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.
