Joan Crawford examines the legend
Greta Garbo is ageless. Though Hollywood's greatest star has retired from the screen, her spell has lost none of its power. Her films are rediscovered by each new generation. And the woman herself has become a living legend, a mysterious stranger ' wanting to be alone.' No star fell in love as often as Garbo did 6n the screen, but was she herself happy? ' I live in a corner. I am typically alone. I wish it could be otherwise, but it cannot.'
Tonight's programme looks at Garbo's art and life through her films-some never before shown on British television.
Extracts by courtesy of MGM include: Camille, Ninotchka, Queen Christina, Marie Walewska , Two Faced Woman, Flesh and the Devil

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.
