Ginger Rogers: a Tribute

Synopsis

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.
Hollywood star Ginger Rogers, who died at her California home on 25 April, began her career as a teenage vaudeville dancer and became the world's highest paid film actress. Above all, she is remembered for her dancing partnership with Fred Astaire. This film, screened as an Omnibus special on 30 April, shortly after her death, looks at how the legendary musicals were made, with anecdotes by Ginger herself, and clips from Astaire's last television interview.
Producers Charles Chabot. Rosemary Wilton ; Series editor Nigel Williams.

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.
