Gertrude Lawrence ran away from her East End home in 1915 -to join the music-hall. Within a few years she had become a star of the London stage and later went on to Broadway, films and recordings - working with other legendary figures of show business. This spectacular musical biography depicts her rise to fame and wealth - and the great personal cost in terms of her private life. Julie Andrews plays Gertrude Lawrence with great vivacity and has what is often regarded as the finest part of her career.

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.
