Despite her handicap she has developed her hobby of painting designs on pieces of china which she gives as gifts and sells to raise money for the hospital.
She told James O'Hara her story - however, illness prevented her from joining the choirs and congregations from all over Paisley to sing her favourite hymn in the magnificent Paisley Abbey.

: Happy Birthday Las Vegas

A mecca for superstars, chorus-girls, hoteliers, hookers, brides, grooms and gamblers, Las Vegas, Nevada, is celebrating its 75th birthday. Founded at a desert land-auction in 1905, this city of half-a-million now lives by gambling and showbiz; it is the pleasure capital of North America, probably the world.
The Mayor of Las Vegas, the ' King and Queen', and friends of such notorious Nevada heroes as Bugsy Siegel or Howard Hughes , are joined by Liberace Tony Bennett Neil Sedaka
Anthony Newley and others in this star-spangled portrait of America's adult Disneyland.

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.
