: The Big Time: Sheena Easton: The Making of a Star

Reporter John Pitman
The story of Sheena Easton is a real Cinderella story. It began two years ago when the 19-year-old drama student from Glasgow was given the chance to make a pop record for The Big Time.
After seeking advice from Dusty Springfield, Lulu and the inimitable Dorothy Squires, Sheena cut a record called 'Modern girl'. It was a hit - and two more Top 20 singles followed.
Today she's a star. This programme charts her meteoric rise to fame - starting back in Glasgow and ending with Sheena being voted Britain's Top Female Singer and receiving the ultimate accolade - appearing at the Royal Variety Performance.

We Ask the Questions
INTERVIEWER: Mr Attlee , have you anything you'd care to say about the coming election? ATTLEE : No.
With the dreaded two-letter word, Clement Attlee leaves an early TV interviewer grasping at straws.
Omnibus looks at 25 years of the TV interview - political, personal and confessional - and investigates the rules of the game.
Tonight we put the questions to the best-known interrogators in the business - Robin Day , David Dimbleby and David Frost - and to the host of the longest-running talk-show, Michael Parkinson.
And from the archives we rediscover some of the most memorable moments in TV interviews - as well as a few of the nightmares. Researcher CATHERINE COLLIS
Film cameramen KEVIN ROWLEY , JOHN ELSK Film editor JULIAN MILLER Director DAVID CHESHIRE

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.

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.
