: Song 'n' Dance: Presenting Lily Mars

continues a season of musicals.
Today starring Judy Garland Van Heflin
In this lighthearted musical comedy, Judy plays a small-town girl who wants to be an actress. Lily, in fact, will do almost anything to get on the stage, and so in the great tradition of Hollywood in its heyday that's exactly what happens. Romance, songs, a witty script and scintillating performances make this rarely-seen movie a genuine pleasure.

The New Face of Leprosy
Leprosy is feared as a highly contagious and grossly disfiguring disease which is incurable and only strikes in the Third World. None of these ideas are true.
In the USA last year there were new cases of leprosy.
One of them, Marit, is 14 and Danish by birth. She will recover completely and have no deformities whatsoever, thanks to a cure discovered 30 years ago at Carville
Hospital, on the banks of the Mississippi river.
Leprosy is seldom highly contagious and 95 out of every 100 individuals are immune to it, wherever they live. Even deformities - which are not caused directly by the disease - can now be alleviated by surgery.
But despite the cure and natural immunity, there are still 12 million victims throughout the world. Why? Narrator Paul Vaughan Film editor JOHN GAREAU
Horizon editor ROBIN BRIGHTWELL Written and produced by MICHAEL SELVA BARNES

Mike Gibson
Gibson was capped 69 times by Ireland, and 12 more as a British Lion. This quiet, self-effacing man was said by one astute New Zealand critic to be the 'complete rugby player'. Certainly he had an uncanny perception of a game, and found opportunity where lesser mortals would have seen none.
At 43 Gibson is still fit enough to turn out for the occasional club rugby match, though his leisure moments are now spent nurturing that same enthusiasm and inspiration for sport in his family. Barry Davies talks to Gibson in his Belfast home. Film editor DAVE GOOD Producer JEFF GODDARD

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.
