: Zero de conduite

The first of a double bill of films directed in the early 1930s by the acclaimed French film-maker Jean Vigo. A definitive statement on school life and the nature of authority based largely on Vigo's own experiences as a pupil in two provincial boarding schools. By turns a hilarious satire and a bitter indictment of the education system, the film has been the subject of controversy since it was released (and immediately banned) in France 40 years ago. Its unique quality of dreamlike fantasy has influenced countless directors since then. A French film with English subtitles.

: L'Atalante

Vigo's tragically short career gave the world two undoubted masterpieces. Once mercilessly hacked by its production company, this film has now been lovingly restored. The young captain of the barge L Atalante, brings his bride to share life on board the vessel with a boy and a crusty first mate. Disappointed with the monotony of her new world, she pines for the city. A French film with English subtitles.

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.
