: Rebel without a Cause - the James Dean Legacy

Hollywood great Johnny Depp presents a profile of actor James Dean , who died, aged 24, at the wheel of a crashing Porsche 50 years ago this Friday, having completed a scant three films (East of Eden, Rebel without Cause and Giant). Demonstratively moody, tormented and sensitive, Dean's perceived persona caught fire with the first generation of rock 'n' rollers, influencing the likes of Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and John Lennon. Star contributors include Dennis Hopper, David Puttnam, Morrissey, David Bailey, Martin Landau, Bill Wyman and Paul McCartney. Producer Des Shaw

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.
