: The Film Club: Stanley Kubrick

Film director Terence Davies introduces the epic space adventure
2001: A Space Odyssey starring Keir Dullea Gary Lockwood. At the dawn of mankind, a tribe of apes discovers a mysterious monolith. Four million years later, a similar object is found on the moon, beaming signals to Jupiter. A nine-month voyage to follow the signals is launched, with two astronauts manning a huge spaceship and three others in a state of hibernation. Out of the range of mission control, the crew is disturbed to discover Hal, the ship's computer, has a mind of its own ... Concluding the season of his films, Kubrick's dazzling vision of the future is astounding in both its philosophical speculation and visual design. It will be shown in its original wide-screen format.
Screenplay by STANLEY KUBRICK and ARTHUR C CLARKE based on the short story The Sentinel by ARTHUR C. CLARKE Produced and directed by STANLEY KUBRICK

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.
