: Elvis Lives

' I would give my life away for one hour just to see Elvis.'
(MICK HAYWOOD ,
English fan)
'He can bring people together from all over the world.'
(American fan)
'Some feel that Elvis might be the new Messiah.'
(LARRY GELLER , Elvis's hairdresser and spiritual adviser)
Since he died on 16 August 1977, Elvis Presley has become bigger in death than in life. Filmed in England, across the USA and in Memphis on the anniversary of his death, Elvis Lives looks at the fans who live their lives for Elvis; the people who make a living from Elvis, including a Las Vegas impersonator and a Hollywood lookalikes agency; and it also takes a look at the length to which some people will go to express their adoration for the King of Rock 'n' Roll - even plastic surgery.

: Strangeways

The last of eight programmes Christmas
Nothing brings the true meaning of prison into sharper focus than Christmas; not just a time of merriment and good cheer, but a time when families and friends gather together.
The isolation of the men inside seems all the more poignant as the authorities do their best to introduce a festive atmosphere. A tree goes up in the great central hall; decorations hang from the forbidding iron galleries and stairways; the strains of a Salvation Army band mingle with the more familiar sounds of clanging doors and rattling keys.
It is a time when, traditionally, human beings pause and take stock of their situation. And a time, perhaps, for everyone to pause and take stock of what life in prison may be doing to our fellow men.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
