: To Kill a Mockingbird

Classic courtroom drama based on the Harper Lee novel starring Gregory Peck

While their widowed father defends a black man accused of rape, Jem and Scout are more concerned with the important events and playthings of childhood. However, as prejudice splits their impoverished southern community, the children get caught up in the grown-ups' proceedings. Gregory Peck won an Oscar for his compassionate performance in this classic adaptation of the Pulitzer prize-winning novel.

: Fine Cut

A ten-part series of feature-length documentaries made by independent film-makers reflecting their individual concerns and passions. Absolutely Positive
An estimated one-and-a-half million Americans are infected with HIV. If government estimates are correct, half will develop Aids in the next ten years. American film-maker
Peter Adair offers a moving and uplifting account of how 11 men and women, infected with HIV, live with the prospect. His subjects range in age from 17 to 60 and represent a variety of lifestyles, regions, ethnic origins and risk groups. Adair, whose work often examines issues of immediate personal concern, says, "A while ago I tested positive for the HIV virus.... I decided to make a film about it."

: Moving Pictures

BBC2's weekly cinema night. Skip Lievsay discusses
"designing sound" for the films Cape Fear, Matewan and Barton Fink. There's a profile of the film studios at
Babelsberg in Berlin where
Metropolis, Marlene Dietrich 's Blue Angel and Baron
Munchhausen were made, and an interview with Wim Wenders , whose Until the End of the World was partly shot there last year. Also, how three first time writer-directors, whose new films were rejected by the usual British backers, raised their money in unusual ways. David Cohen (The
Pleasure Principle) got his budget from his NatWest bank manager! Mark Peploe (Afraid of the Dark), raised European co-production money, and Mark Harmon took his Blame It on the Bellboy script to Disney. With Howard Schuman.

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.
