: Storyville: Pie In the Sky

Brigid Berlin had a comfortable uptown upbringing that her mother hoped would end in her becoming a respectable socialite. Instead, she found cult recognition as an acolyte of Andy Warhol, appearing nude in many photographs and Warhol films. Vincent Fremont and Shelly Dunn Fremont's film shows how, at 60, the outrageous star's life now revolves around her twin obsessions of slimming and housekeeping.

Best known for her appearance in Fellini's La Dolce Vita and her singing with the Velvet Underground, Nico was nevertheless a troubled soul whose iconic beauty was offset by a self-destructive urge and an inability to reconcile herself with life.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
