Puttin' on More Style


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.
New series 1/4. Following on from a 2004 series detailing the personal styles of Hollywood greats like Cary Grant , Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn , Robert Lindsay celebrates four more stars who not only carried a distinctive style but also embodied the essence of it. This series, which combines clips, songs and previously unaired material, showcases Errol Flynn ,
Ava Gardner and Clark Gable but starts with one of the most renowned of all Hollywood actresses, Katharine Hepburn. Nominated for 12 Oscars (and winner of four), Hepburn played the Hollywood starlet, but on her own terms. Her assertive dress sense and commanding screen presence perhaps found their most stylish expression in George Cukor 's 1940 romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story. Contributors include
Barry Norman , director Bryan Forbes and cultural theorist Stella Bruzzi.
Producers Paul Kobrak and Alison Vernon-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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
