Once upon a Time....
Some of Britain's best-loved television stars take to the stage of the Dominion Theatre in London to raise funds for theNSPCC.
This year's show is an adventure. A boy sets out on an unusual quest - to find a name for himself, and to find a story to entertain the wizard who created him in an idle moment.
The wizard is played by former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy , and the tale is narrated by Matthew Kelly.
Along the way, the boy encounters characters brought to life by the likes of Right Said Fred, Barbara Windsor , Bernard Cribbins ,
Lisa Maxwell , Frank Bruno , Pauline Quirke and Linda Robson , Billy Pearce. Brian Conley ,
Rosemarie Ford , the London City Ballet, and the Royal Ballet's Stephen Jefferies. There are children's favourites such as Take That!, Michaela Strachan ,
Andi Peters , the Chuckle Brothers and Edd the Duck, plus a host of dancers, magicians, acrobats and singers.
Given in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret, who is president of the NSPCC. Director Stanley Appel Producer Tudor Davies

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.
