: Garbo in Marie Walewska

The fourth of five films in celebration of the legendary actress's 80th birthday with Charles Boyer For Countess
Walewska and other patriotic Poles, Napoleon was their possible saviour from the Cossacks. But when the Emperor visits Poland he is more inclined to pursue the beautiful Countess than the warring Cossacks. Her fellow nobles urge Marie to make
'the supreme sacrifice' to save her country. Thus begins one of history's great love stories.
Screenplay by SAMUEL HOFFENSTEIN , SALKA VIERTEL and S.N. BEHRMAN Based on the novel Pani Walewska by WACLAW GASlOROWSKI and a dramatisation by HELEN JEROME Produced by BERNARD H. HYMAN Directed by CLARENCE BROWN

: Do They Mean Us?

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite, and kind to animals. Each week, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign TV reports this country.
Tonight he looks at reports on sex, food and fashion in Britain and discovers that
'continental men have sex lives - Englishmen have hot water bottles'.

: Coming Out of the Ice

continues a season of films new to television, tonight starring
John Savage and Willie Nelson
This award-winning movie is based on the incredible true story of teenager Victor Herman who visited Russia with his parents in 1931. As a fine athlete Victor was persuaded to stay in the Soviet Union to take up training opportunities he would not have in his native Detroit. It was 36 years before he was allowed to return home - and 18 of those years were spent in Siberian labour camps. This is the story of his experiences....
Screenplay by Alan Sharp

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.
