- Radio 2 celebrates the enduring appeal of American superhero comic books, whose otherworldly stories first hit the newstands in 1938 via the DC (Detective Comics) character Superman. Batman and Wonder
Woman followed, as did the Marvel Comics crusaders the Amazing
Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men and Captain America. The books never went out of favour
- particularly for adolescent males - and got a seismic boost in 1978 with Richard Donner 's hit movie, Superman. Comic-book adaptations are now something of a Hollywood fixture. Presenting the programme is Alice Cooper - himself once the subject of a Marvel comic series - with input from legendary comics creator
Stan Lee , artist John Romita and writer/editor Roy Thomas , plus ex-Marvel employee Neil Tennant. Producer Owen McFadden

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.
