John Walters revisits the Saturday morning cinema of his childhood, rediscovers the joy of seeing Flash Gordon get out of trouble, and recalls singing cowboy Roy Rogers who died earlier this month. Andrew Sachs, Sally Thomsett, Melvyn Hayes and Keith Chegwin recall the whiff of bubble gum and stink bombs in the aisles.
Producer Neil George
Russell Davies presents the last of six programmes celebrating the collaboration of Broadway songwriters
Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. This programme recalls the controversy surrounding Pal Joey; Hammerstein becomes Rodgers's new collaborator; and Gene Kelly performs Bewitched,
Bothered and Bewildered and I Could Write a Book.
Producer David Benedictus
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.
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.
