Beginners Please!
Precocious monsters or delightful starlets?
In the first of three films David Dimbleby raises the curtain on stage schools and steps into the tiny tots' world of showbusiness. Stage schools claim to give full professional and academic training, leading hopefully to a successful professional career - others say that they offer little more than the four Rs - Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic and Resting - producing yet another wave of hopefuls to swell the army of adults permanently ' between engagements.' But while at school they may already be enjoying the sweet smell of success. If the face fits - if it looks commercial enough - a lucky ten-year-old could already be earning three times more than his Dad. That same child could also be a ' has been' at 15.
Tonight we go back-stage to talk to ANTHONY NEWLEY and MARK LESTER and to the children who hope to be the stars of tomorrow.
Producer FRANK SMITH

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
