A season of films starring one of Britain's most popular film comedians, George Formby Today with Kay Walsh
In this lively vehicle George plays a provincial photographer's assistant, who invents a camera so tiny that he can operate it secretly from under his bow tie! Inevitably it leads to complications, beginning when George loses his job - and ends up as an ice-hockey referee.
The climactic ice-rink sequences provide Formby with an ideal opportunity for slapstsick and good-natured fun.

: The Big Class

This film looks back to the sailing days of the 30s.
Against a background of economic depression and surprising affluence, the 'Big Class' flourished. They were the mighty yachts that dominated the waters of the Solent. It's a story of wealthy owners, their professional crews and the yacht builders. It's also the story of the prewar challenge for the America's Cup.

Talk is Cheap
What is a chat show - a forum for stimulating conversation and the exchange of ideas or just an economical way of filling the airwaves?
Gus Macdonald becomes host for an evening and invites his guests Russell Harty , David Frost and Kenneth Williams to discourse on the art of the chat show. Simon Dee talks about the legendary moment when he was given his own chat show and Jackie Collins sets off on the long promotional haul, knocking off one chat show after another. And Quentin Crisp and Malcolm Muggeridge consider why we should want to watch strangers talking on television.

Presented by Angharad Mair and Adrian Mills with David Miller , AIDS counsellor and clinical psychologist at Middlesex Hospital.
Someone found to carry the AIDS virus could lose their job, their home, their friends, their future. Until effective medical treatment is available counsellors urge people to weigh up the pros and cons of being tested.

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.
