Harold Lloyd made the astonishing total of over 300 films. He did all his own stunts, including his famous and terrifying sky-scraper walking. To add to the danger his right hand was permanently damaged when a studio bomb blew up.
Stan Laurel was English, and learnt his trade in the same music-hall troupe as Charlie Chaplin. He switched from acting to directing and only went back when another performer scalded his arm. Playing opposite him was a ' heavy ' called ' Babe ' Hardy, which is how the team of Laurel and Hardy began.

A Conversation with Harold Lloyd

'I only did four pictures out of 300 where I was hanging from the top of a tall building, but I guess they're the ones that have stuck in people's minds.'
Harold Lloyd was, after Keaton and Chaplin, perhaps the greatest star of the silent screen. He talked about his career to Denis McCarthy just before he died in 1971 at the age of 78.
BBC Radio 4 FM

Harold wins a live turkey whilst shopping and faces the problem of getting it home on a crowded streetcar in Hot Water. Then, dodging a persistent land-lady, in Bumping into Broadway, he is hilariously chased by cops raiding a gambling-joint.

The dare-devil and hair-raising climb up the side of a high building in Safety Last is perhaps Harold Lloyd 's most celebrated stunt. There is also a calamity-bound venture behind the scenes of movie-making in Hey There.

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.
