The Big Time: 3: Sheena Easton - Pop Singer


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Another series of six of the programmes which give a talented amateur the chance to join the professional world of her dreams.
Reporter John Pitman
Sheena Easton is a 19-year-old student from Glasgow, who has always dreamed of becoming a pop star. We gave her the chance. A major recording company agreed, if she was good enough, to let her make a record. We watched her being photographed by Patrick Lichfield, advised by stars like Lulu, Dusty Springfield and Dorothy Squires, packaged and produced by one of the top recording men, Chris Neil. Finally, she made the record, but will it be a hit?

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.
