: Elvis Presley in Elvis on Tour

A memorable film record of Elvis
Presley's concert tour of America in 1972 in which his sensational performances delighted faithful fans and newcomers alike. The film captures the magic of songs ranging from early hits such as Don 't be cruel and Love me tender to contemporary ballads like Bridge over troubled water, as well as providing a rare, off-stage picture of the man behind the legend.
Produced and directed by PIERRE ADIDGE and ROBERT ABOL

Life After Crime
Despite growing public anxiety over the rising crime rate, little is done for the victims. The long-term effects of crime on these forgotten people can be traumatic yet remain unrecognised or misunderstood.
There is now a spreading national movement of Victims of Crime Support Schemes and this film is about just one local group in south west Liverpool. In the face of a bewildering, sometimes horrifying, array of crime their philosophy remains constant: to turn victims into survivors. Narrator
David Jones
Film editor PAUL WILLEY
Series producer PETER LEE-WRIGHT Producer GILES OAKLEY
Open Space is the series where the public make programmes under their own editorial control with help from the Community Programme Unit.

: Q.E.D.

The Eleven-Minute Mile Some doctors thought he might never even walk. For the past two years, 8-year-old Doran Scotson has been running a mile every day. A major step in his achievement was his decision to go for a time of 11 minutes. Not beyond many boys of his age; but Doran is different. Severe jaundice at birth damaged his brain, leaving him terribly handicapped.
Doran and his mother Linda have one singular ambition: by extraordinary effort to achieve ordinary progress.
But there is nothing ordinary about this most moving story of love, determination and courage.

: Wildlife Showcase

The last of a series of nine programmes featuring natural history films from other countries. Ducks in Danger
For thousands of years, one of the greatest pageants of nature has been the annual migration of waterfowl along the entire length of North America. For days on end, ducks, geese and swans once darkened the skies in 'the fall', but their numbers have been steadily dropping.
Recently the population of ducks fell by 25 per cent - it was said to be due to four years of drought - but the reason is far more complex than that.
In this, the second film from the Canadian series The Nature of Things,
David Suzuki takes a look at the apparent crisis facing the North American waterfowl. Ducks in Danger won the Conservation Award at Wildscreen in 1986 Television presentation GEORGE INGER BBC Bristol

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.
