1: Margot Fonteyn 's mother,
Mrs Hilda Hookham
Because little Peggy Hookham 's father thought that she needed 'deportment' when she was five years old she was sent to dancing lessons.
Peggy liked lessons so much that she decided to become a ballerina, changed her name to Margot Fonteyn and now, almost 50 years later, is still captivating audiences around the world with her brilliance.
Margot Fonteyn has told her own story many times. Now her mother, 78-year-old MRS HILDA HOOKHAM, tells JOHN PITMAN some of the stories that she remembers about her famous daughter.

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.
