: John Wayne Is Dead

To mark the upcoming 100th anniversary of the birth of screen legend John Wayne (born Marion Robert Morrison), film director Peter Bogdanovich pays tribute to the iconic star who remains best known as the embodiment of the Hollywood western. The programme asserts that Wayne's tough, idealistic, independent but innocent on-screen hero persona could not exist in today's less hierarchially defined moral climate. Fanning the flames of the Wayne mythology are his son Michael, Time magazine film critic Richard Schickel, biographer Randy Roberts, Hollywood executive Michael Medavoy, and actors Lauren Bacall and Kirk Douglas.

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.
