Elvis Lives


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.
' I would give my life away for one hour just to see Elvis.'
English fan)
'He can bring people together from all over the world.'
(American fan)
'Some feel that Elvis might be the new Messiah.'
(LARRY GELLER , Elvis's hairdresser and spiritual adviser)
Since he died on 16 August 1977, Elvis Presley has become bigger in death than in life. Filmed in England, across the USA and in Memphis on the anniversary of his death, Elvis Lives looks at the fans who live their lives for Elvis; the people who make a living from Elvis, including a Las Vegas impersonator and a Hollywood lookalikes agency; and it also takes a look at the length to which some people will go to express their adoration for the King of Rock 'n' Roll - even plastic surgery.

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.
