: Lulu

at Berns Restaurant, Stockholm with The Young Generation
Featuring Lulu, one of Britain's most professional girl singers in a spectacular cabaret at one of Sweden's smartest night-spots...
She is joined by the Young Generation, the live-wire team of boys and girls who made such a big hit in Rolf Harris 's latest series.
As you might expect the Young Generation are very much a team off-stage. A fact demonstrated by the three marriages within the troupe. It also has its drawbacks. A few days before they were due to leave for Sweden one of the boys was in contact with someone who had chicken-pox. The entire crew waited breathlessly for a rash of red spots to break out among the dancers. Luckily, they didn't.
Their high professional standards were really put to the test when they flew to Sweden to record a series of four programmes. They had just two weeks to learn 29 different dance routines - steps and words.
They really do sing the words of the songs and are producing an LP to prove 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
