: Blue Peter Royal Safari

with HRH The Princess Anne and Valerie Singleton
"Since the first showing of this film Blue Peter launched an appeal for three million parcels of old socks and pillow cases to provide a dormitory for 20 children at the Starehe Boys Centre. The response was so great the target was trebled - so now 60 destitute African boys will be given the chance of a new life and a secure future. A truly happy ending to the film!
An excellent debut for the Princess in her first major television show."

I Regret Nothing
Another chance to see this much-praised musical biography of Edith Piaf
Edith Piaf is known as ' The Queen of French Song.' This film retraces her legendary life, from her birth on a pavement in the slums of Paris in December 1915 to her death in 1963 at the age of 47. Helping to tell her extraordinary story are her two husbands, friends and colleagues, with special contributions from: Charles Aznavour Bruno Coquatrix
Eddie Constantine
Michel Emer , composer
Marcel Blistene , film director and many songs from Edith Piaf and YVES MONTAND
, LES COMPAGNONS DE LA CHANSON
Narrated by DAVID DE KEYSER
The songs - masses of them - are ravishing, and reverberate through the film to its sad end. (observer) Refreshingly free from the usual show business soft soap. (TELEGRAPH) A triumph not only of technique, but also of taste.
(INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE)

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
