112. Veteran film critic
Barry Norman introduces two programmes on film music from the composer's standpoint, featuring lessons in studio technique and film terminology, and interviews with top directors, editors, producers and composers. The two-parter covers Hollywood in detail next week, and starts this evening with a look at mainly British soundtracks. Norman's historical overview recalls the big orchestral music of established composers in early silent films, the pared-town sounds that accompanied the new realism of the 50s and 60s, the James Bond phenomenon, and the changes necessitated by the transition from the big screen to television. Producer Clive Stanhope

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.
