: Marilyn Monroe: Say Goodbye to the President

Marilyn Monroe , the most glamorous star in Hollywood, died alone in August 1962, surrounded by intrigue, and rejected by powerful political lovers.
November 1961
The Private Eye's Story Marilyn and John F. Kennedy share a bedroom at a Californian beach house.
The room is bugged - by the President's enemies.
July 1962
The Confidante's Story Marilyn is in love with the President's brother. Fearful of scandal, Bobby Kennedy tries to end the affair.
August 1962
The Brother-in-Law's Story Marilyn is dying from an overdose of drugs. On the phone she tells the Kennedys' brother-in-law,
Peter Lawford : 'Say goodbye to the President.'
The Ambulanceman 's
Story Marilyn is not found dead, as reported to the public, but alive. She is taken to hospital, too late to save her life, but giving time - it is claimed - to get Bobby out of town.
Innocently, Marilyn Monroe had been caught up in a sinister underworld of political dirty tricks, Mafia bosses and wiretappers.
Say Goodbye to the President examines the scandal which hovered over America's most powerful political dynasty - and how the Kennedys' enemies tried to use tape recordings to pressure the government of the USA. Programme consultant ANTHONY SUMMERS

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.
