/ Don Sing Like Nobody
The first of two programmes which celebrate and examine Elvis Presley 's life.
Through interviews with his wife, lovers, friends and colleagues, his story is told with the emphasis on discovering his true nature.
Elvis could hardly have had a worse start in life, born into the deep rural poverty of Mississippi during the Depression. Yet at 21 he was rich and famous, poised to take Hollywood by storm.
What had equipped him for this fast rise to stardom?
Those who knew him reveal that beyond his musical gift and facial beauty was another quality which affected people profoundly. His upbringing, with a mother who was always there for him, certain that he was extraordinary, fostered in Elvis the essential characteristics of any great performer - faith in himself and a yearning for love.

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.
