The last of four programmes My Kinda Life
Is Cliff Richard too good to be true? How has he survived for over 20 years as the golden boy of pop and still remained unscathed?
In this final programme we look at the fans, the fame and the fortune that go to make up a superstar, and aim to catch the man behind the image. With music from his recent sell-out tours and special surprise footage shot at his 40th birthday last year, Cliff is seen at his rock 'n' rolling best. Along with comments from Olivia Newton-John and The Shadows, Cliff himself talks freely about his life, his loves, temptations and beliefs. As he sings in the title track: ' It's my kinda life and I like it'.

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.
