: Sunday Feature: Everyone's Wicked Uncle

One Hundred Years of Hitchcock
To mark the Hitchcock centenary,
Peter Conrad reassesses the impact of his 53 films, from The Pleasure
Garden (1925) to Family Plot (1976). New interviews with director Peter
Bogdanovich, Psycho screenwriter Joseph Stefano and Hitchcock's daughter Patricia are blended with archive interviews with stars and colleagues, including the famous conversation between Hitchcock and Truffaut. Hitchcock's films terrified audiences and established film-making as an art form. When he went to America in 1939, his reputation was already secure. But behind the popularity, there was a darker side - stories of control and victimisation surface alongside anecdotes about his kindness and prankish humour.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
