: Saturday Cinema 1: The Kid

Charlie Chaplin Jackie Coogan
Jackie Coogan as the Kid - a miniature version of the tramp - is acquired by mistake in infancy and brought up in a world of harshness and poverty by Charlie. A splendid combination of slapstick and sentiment, this is a 'picture with a smile -and perhaps, a tear'.
Screenplay, music, production and direction by CHARLIE CHAPLIN

: Rugby Special

Ireland v England France v Wales
Nigel Starmer-Smith introduces highlights of today's internationals.
Victory for Ireland would give them the Triple Crown and championship following last year's wooden spoon.
However, if England were to win, they would be on course for the two titles themselves. France and Wales having started off the season as joint favourites for the championship, have disappointed, and have a lot to prove, and improve on, in their approach and styles of play.

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.
