: Elstree - Britain's Hollywood

First of a two-part documentary to celebrate Elstree's 75th anniversary.
Presented by David Puttnam. Best known today as the home of EastEnders, Elstree once boasted six film studios, which made it the biggest production centre outside
Hollywood. It was here that Alfred Hitchcock ,
Charles Laughton , Audrey Hepburn and many others launched their careers; where the first British sound picture was recorded; where The Private Life of Henry VIII made cinema history; and where hundreds of popular films have since come to life, among them The Dam
Busters, Moby Dick , 2001 and Star Wars. And it all began, 75 years ago, on the site of Albert Square....

Heavy Metal
Ever since its noisy birth out of the primitive fuzzboxes of the 1960s, heavy metal music has been maligned and misunderstood by public and critics alike. But, to its millions of fans worldwide, heavy metal is the only form of popular music with any integrity, the true keeper of the eternal flame of rock 'n' roll. This is an exploration of the music in all its aspects, from its origins in the blues to the Black Country and beyond, with the aid of a truly unbeatable line-up including Jimmy Page , Ozzy Osbourne , Led Zeppelin,
Black Sabbath , Motorhead,
Guns 'n' Roses, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer,
Jimi Hendrix , Kiss, David Lee Roth and Napalm Death.
Plus an oblique look at heavy metal's event of the year;
Castle Donington, where the fans gather as devotedly as pilgrims to Canterbury. Film editor RAY FRAWLEY Series editors

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.
