: Moving Pictures

Steven Soderbergh , director of the award-winning Sex, Lies and Videotape, has just completed his long-awaited second feature. Refusing lucrative offers from
Hollywood for big-budget studio projects, Soderbergh opted instead for Kafka, a black-and-white film starring Jeremy Irons. Soderbergh and his collaborators talk exclusively to Moving Pictures about life after Sex.
Plus an affectionate look at a family whose experience spans the postwar British cinema - the Thomases. Jeremy Thomas produced Bertolucci's
Oscar-laden Last Emperor; his father Ralph directed
Dirk Bogarde in the Doctor films, while uncle Gerald was responsible for the Carry On cycle. With contributions from Bernardo Bertolucci , Barbara Windsor , Dirk Bogarde and the Thomases themselves.
Presented by Howard Schuman.

: Eureka

Tonight's Moving Pictures feature presentation was produced by Jeremy Thomas and stars Gene Hackman
Theresa Russell
In 1925, Jack McCann makes a fabulous gold strike in Canada, giving him all the wealth he needs. Twenty years on he lives on his own Caribbean island with his alcoholic wife, tempestuous daughter and her playboy husband. But McCann refuses to heed the warnings that turning down offers from a Miami mafioso may have deadly consequences. This uncompromising, visionary film was based on a true murder case and is very rarely seen.

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.
