This film, shot in the places where he lived and worked, explores the themes he made his own: the racecourse, the ballet class, the work of laundresses and cafe life. with pupils of The Royal Ballet School Executive producer CHRISTOPHER MARTIN

: Bodyline

3: November 1932. As
Bradman's wrangle with the Board of Control reaches stalemate, Jardine's MCC team arrives in Australia. His plan to curb Bradman - the 'leg theory' attack - remains a mystery to all but the obedient professionals, and Larwood in particular. The
'gentleman' players and team manager 'Plum' Warner are unprepared for its unveiling, and what begins as one man's calculated method to win the Ashes at all costs is turned by anger into the rancorous issue of 'bodyline'.

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.
