Kim Novak
When Dino, a pop singer with his mind set on the opposite sex, passes through the town of Climax, the local garage attendant sees a chance to interest the singer in his songs. His bait is the curvacious hostess of the local bar. Martin gives a monstrous, self-parodying portrait as the singer and Kim Novak is superbly cast in this wicked comedy.

: Sven Klang's Quintet

- starring
Anders Granstrom Christer Boustedt Described by Jazz
Journal as 'perhaps the best and most serious work about jazz ever presented on the screen', Stellan Olsson's film is unusual in that the actors play their instruments and two of them composed and arranged the score. It is based on the life of baritone sax player
Lars Gullin , portrayed in the film by alto saxman
Christer Boustedt. Sven Klang runs a dance band. They play at weddings and clubs and fancy themselves as musicians. Then Sven takes on a new alto player and they have to face their shortcomings.
(Jazz Week continues tomorrow at 9.30 pm with Jazz at the Philharmonic)

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.
