: Hollywood on Trial

2/2. Entertainment broadcaster and biographer Michael Freedland recalls a dark period in Hollywood history when the House Un-
American Activities Committee
(HUAC) targeted actors, writers, directors and producers whom it deemed to be Communist Party members and therefore a serious threat to American society.
From 1947 until the early 50s, the committee aggressively set out to purge Hollywood of these so-called subversives, many of whom were forced to quit their professions or work under assumed names. The programme features soundtrack clips and interviews with Lee Grant , Kirk Douglas , Artie Shaw , Larry Adler and the descendants of Edward G Robinson , Ring Lardner Jr , Robert Rossen and Dalton Trumbo , plus archive input from Arthur Miller and Elia Kazant.

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.
