: Jaws: the Birth of theBlockbuster

To mark the 30th anniversary of the US release of Steven Spielberg 's aquatic suspense thriller Jaws, RT film editor Andrew Collins assesses the movie's seismic impact. The 1975 medium-budget shark tale reinvented the box-office blockbuster and nearly drowned out the memory of earlier hits like Love Story , Airport, The
Godfather, The Exorcist, The Sting, and The Towering Inferno with its colossal takings and unusually wide cinema release and aggressive ad campaign, foreshadowing George Lucas 's Star Wars two years later. Contributors include those who worked on the film, including
Jaws novelist and screenwriter
Peter Benchley , producer Richard Zanuck and production designer Joe Alves. Plus music, clips, archive material and nostalgic input from Jaws fans Steve Wright , Jonathan Ross , Jeremy Vine and Steve Punt. Producer Mark Hill

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.
