Film-maker and critic
Tony Rayns introduces two first features about family ties.
Next of Kin starring
Patrick Tierney
Arsinee Khanjian
'My name is Peter. I'm 23 years old. I've lived at home all my life,
- watching my parents dislike each other.'
The ingenious way Peter escapes from one family into another is the subject of this wry comedy from Canada, the first film by the director of the recently released Family Viewing.
Written and directed by ATOM EGOYAN
(First showing on British television) and at 11.30pm
Father and Son starring Shek Lui Cheng Yu-Or
Allen Fong's poignant yet funny debut film reflects his own childhood and adolescence. Like Ka-
Hing, Fong grew up in Hong Kong in the 1960s. Ka-Hing's ambition to direct films clashes with his father's ideas of a suitable career for his son. While Ka-Hing daydreams, his father is prepared to make any sacrifice to make his son get on in the world.
Screenplay by CHAN CHIU , CHEUNG KIN TING and LEE BIK WAH
Produced by WONG KAI CHUEN Directed by ALLEN FONG

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.
