2/4. Robert Lindsay continues his celebration of distinctively stylish Hollywood stars with Australian-born swashbuckler par excellence Errol Flynn , who epitomised the dashing male lead and performed his own stunts, but refused to kowtow to the Hollywood moguls. In both 1943 and 1948 Flynn won the Golden Apple's Sour Apple award for "Least Cooperative
Actor". He died in 1959, aged 50, having acted in over 60 films including Captain Blood, The
Charge of the Light Brigade, The Adventures of Robin Hood , The Sea Hawk and Santa Fe Trail.
New series 1/4. The story of pop and rock as recalled by the listeners and consumers who fed the careers of everyone from Cliff Richard to the Sex Pistols.
Expect to hear reminiscences and anecdotes from fans of all ages. Producer Mark Haqen Vox pop: page 119
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.
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.
