Tom Winston is furious to discover his three children shared out among relations. Hustling them off to his batchelor flat in Washington, he soon discovers that being a single parent is no joke. Then young Robert runs away.... Sophia Loren 's partnership with Cary Grant in this delightful comedy, echoes the romantic interlude in her own life revealed in her recently televised autobiography.

: Topol's Israel

The first of six musical journeys in which film and stage star Chaim Topol revisits his native Israel.
Part documentary and part entertainment, the series joins Topol on the closing night of his triumphant
West End revival of Fiddler on the Roof, and follows him to Tel Aviv, the city which has always been his home.
Week by week Topol reflects on his experiences as a child of Israel - his memories of family life in an immigrant quarter, of the Exodus operation, his pioneering days on a Kibbutz, his days as an entertainer in an army troupe.
His travels range from the Galilee to the Red Sea, from Jerusalem to Jaffa, and from the Lebanon to Eilat, and on his way he meets an array of friends from every walk of Israeli life.

: Forty Minutes

... of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Union Street
It is the thoroughfare that links sober, respectable
Plymouth with Royal Naval Devonport, and it is known with affection all over the world. Even in Hong Kong or San Francisco mention of Union Street will ignite a twinkle in a sailor's eye.
For Union Street represents the older traditions of Plymouth. Before naval ratings got caught up in 0- and A-levels, it was where Jack went for his run ashore, and it was where the pubs and clubs and girls of the town were waiting to part him from his money. There used to be a railway bridge over Union Street just where it meets Plymouth proper.
Respectable people never went under that bridge.
Today the bridge has been demolished - and buried in the dust and rubble went much of the street's lurid past. But a flavour of the old days still remains - enough to glimpse a fleeting shadow of what was once the Reeperbahn of the Devon Riviera. Film cameramen

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.
