: Elstree - Britain's Hollywood

Second of two programmes presented by David Puttnam. This year marks the 75th anniversary of film-making in a quiet Hertfordshire village which became the biggest film production centre outside Hollywood.
For several decades Elstree's name was synonymous with that of the British film industry. Since the end of the war, hundreds of films have come to life there, as diverse as The Dam Busters, Moby Dick , Ice Cold in Alex, 2001, The Railway Children, and Star Wars. Today, with only two of the original six studios left, one making films, the other producing television programmes, notably
EastEnders, the story of Elstree's rise and decline also mirrors that of the industry as a whole.

The Confessions of Robert Crumb
After Robert Crumb , comics could never be the same again. He came to fame in the mid 60s with characters like Fritz the Cat and the archetypal guru, Mr Natural , in wicked satires on the excesses of the Love
Generation. In a medium associated with superheroes, Crumb deals only with anti-heroes, most entertainingly his own self-portrait, a confused, paranoid weakling with an unfortunate taste for big, powerful women. Lost in the modern world, Crumb has found refuge in rural
California with his wife and fellow comic artist,
Aline Kominsky. Tonight in a rare appearance before the camera, he talks about his work and his troubles with women, life and himself. 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.
