: Real Lives: Blow-dry in Vegas

A series of filmed documentaries about the way people live now.
Their weapons are razors, scissors and rat-tail combs. Their long months of training have had a special edge, because they know they are up against some of the sharpest competition in the world: 'I've never been in an international yet where there hasn't been any cheating - the Italians and French do their fair share and in 1978 the Germans cheated so much they were disqualified.' Representing the British gents are Simon, Tino, Rocco and Trevor. For the ladies, John, Paul, Andrew and Chris.
Follow the contest as the British boys snip for gold under the hot arc lights of the 1984 World Hairdressing Championships in Las Vegas. It's a cut-throat battle, with the risk of skulduggery at front, back and sides.

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.
