: I soliti ignoti

Vittorio Gassman
Marcello Mastroianni Claudia Cardinale Toto
Ambitious small-time crooks plot the perfect robbery. Their attention to detail is meticulous, but somehow when the time comes to put their brilliant plan into operation, things go catastrophically and hilariously wrong.
Monicelli's affectionate spoof of popular crime thrillers became a classic in its own right and became the model for Louis Malle's latest film Crackers.

: Eye to Eye

The last of six documentaries by black film-makers. The Stein Brothers
Many remarkable stories have emerged from the experiences of South Africa's political emigres, but few compare with that of the Stein family.
As a boxer, Isaiah Stein was a prosperous and well-respected member of the coloured community in Cape Town. But, with political involvement came arrest, the end of his sporting ambitions and finally, exile.
But Isaiah Stein 's story wasn't to end in despair. He has assets which few possess - his seven sons. Now, in England, two are professional footballers, two non-league players and two professional tennis coaches. Among them are Brian and Mark Stein of Luton Town, but they are just the tip of the iceberg of Stein sporting talent.

: Maharajas

Kings and Castles
Officially, India's princes are no more. The Maharajas, who for generations held sway over one third of the sub-continent, have been
'de-recognised'. Yet although the powers are gone, the trappings - and the memories - remain.
In this, the first of two programmes, members of the royal families talk of the past.... of fierce battles and heroic sacrifices of life in the zenana or harem, of hunting, fabled wealth and the golden years under British paramount rule.
The film is a unique record of disappearing ceremonies and rituals and contains exclusive footage from the Maharajas' personal archives. Running through the documentary is the dramatised story of a princess, played by Simi Garewal , taking her nephew Ajit (Jugal Hansraj ) to his new school. As they travel, she gives Ajit - and us - a glimpse of India's extraordinary royal heritage. Written by CHARLES ALLEN Camera JOHN KENWAY Sound JOHN PARKER

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
