: Murphy Brown

A multi-Emmy award winner, this sophisticated sitcom starring Candice Bergen has consistently topped the ratings chart in the USA since it was first televised there in 1988. The primetime show is so influential that two years ago, when it was announced that Bergen's unmarried character was pregnant, the then vice president Dan Quayle accused it of being a symbol of the collapsing family values that were partly to blame forthe Los Angeles riots.
Set in a newsroom in Washington
DC, the series centres around the strong-willed, 40-ish starreporterof FYI, a successful news-magazine show. This episode, Respect, is the pilot and sees the highly-strung
Murphy Brown returning to work aftera brief stay at the Betty Ford Clinic.

See today's choices.
First shown on lTV

Narrated by Laurence Olivier, produced by Jeremy Isaacs, with music by Carl Davis and featuring an interview with Traudl Junge, Hitler's private secretary - The World at War had a lot going for it. Now Thames TV's award-laden 1973 history of the Second World War returns, this time to BBC2, in all its 26-week glory.

Tonight's first episode, A New Germany, traces the emergence of the nation from its crippling defeat in the First World War. It is 1930, and a bewildered people are turning to one man to help them out of their financial and social crisis: Adolf Hitler. Home movies of Hitler and Eva Braun contrast with the sinister machinations of the Nazi publicity machine, already gearing itself up for the "final solution".

Producer: Jeremy Isaacs

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.
