: Timewatch

The Projection Racket
The 1930s were a golden age for Hollywood and its gangsterfilms. But behind the screen, the Mob was turning a small-time protection racket, which targetted projectionists, into a million-dollar shakedown. What began as extortion soon became a mutually beneficial arrangement. Timewatch went to Hollywood and Chicago to uncover the story of how movie moguls and Mobsters joined forces to keep the dream factory going, whatever the cost. Director Christopher Spencer ; Producer Paul Kerr

: Cinema Europe: the Other Hollywood

Kenneth Branagh narrates the last in the series telling the story of early film-making in Europe.
End of an Era. The final episode looks at the impact of the arrival of sound on the European film industry. Despite European technical innovation, the industry lacked investors to promote its discoveries. However, it was not sound that doomed the golden age of European film-making. With the rise to power of the Nazi party at the beginning of the 1930s, a new era dawned in film-making history; international co-productions began to fade and nationalistic propaganda films started asserting their authority.
Directors/Producers David Gill and Kevin Brownlow

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.
