: British Film Forever: Hardluck, Humour and Heroes

3/7. An examination of one of the few golden ages for UK film, from the late 1950s and the advent of the social realism genre. It was a movement that propelled the realities of working-class experience onto the big screen and made stars of the likes of Albert Finney, Tom Courtenay and Rita Tushingham in their roles in classics such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Billy Liar and A Taste of Honey. But the movement also bequeathed a blueprint for representing everyday experience that endures today in films such as Billy Elliot and Trainspotting.

Discussing their involvement in the films that define the genre are stars such as Malcolm McDowell, Ewan McGregor, Jamie Bell and Phil Daniels, and directors Danny Boyle, Ken Loach and Mike Leigh.

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.
