: Song 'n' Dance: Gold Diggers of 1933

continues a season of musicals today starring Warren William Joan Blondell
With its racy dialogue, revealing costumes and stunning production numbers staged by Busby Berkeley , this Warner Bros' spectacular epitomised the Hollywood musical of the 30s. But against the show business background it also reflects the problems of the day - economic hardship and the unemployment of the Depression.
Screenplay by ERWIN GELSEY and JAMES SEYMOUR
Based on a play by AVERY HOPWOOD Directed by MERVYN LEROY

: Open Space

The Shadow of Suicide In Britain suicide is as common as death on the roads. Every year 5,000 people kill themselves and many more attempt to. Almost everybody who has lost someone close through suicide feels isolated from the rest of us - normal grief is intensified by feelings of guilt, shame and rejection. 'I feel that because of the suicide other people are afraid of me ... I want contact, but there is space between me and most people around me.'
Three families left behind talk about how they feel one year, three years and nine years after a suicide.

: Horizon

Bitter Cold
Twelve men take freezing baths until they can bear them no longer; are injected with chemicals which make them frightened; shiver naked in cold rooms. All to see if man can adapt to the ferocious Antarctic climate. Later they cross the ice, in conditions of deliberate hardship, isolated in flimsy tents. The stresses become intolerable, not only because each man is an experimental guinea pig, but, by running his own uncomfortable and sometimes frightening human experiments, each has a chance to be tormentor and tormented. It may teach about man's ability to adapt to the Antarctic - but it taught them much more about themselves.
Narrator Paul Vaughan

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.
