: Marilyn Monroe: Say Goodbye to the President

Thirty years ago one of the world's most famous sex symbols apparently committed suicide. Since then investigations into the circumstances surrounding her death have cast doubt on this theory. This award-winning documentary tells how Mafia figures dogged Marilyn in the months before she died, bugging her phone, determined to find damning proof of her love affairs with Jack and later Bobby Kennedy. The "Marilyn tapes", mobsters hoped, would be priceless ammunition against the Kennedys.
This documentary reconstructs the last hours of Marilyn's life and the events between the discovery of her body and Peter Lawford's strangely delayed call to police. It presents evidence that Robert Kennedy, then Attorney-General, visited Marilyn the afternoon she died, and that - to avoid political scandal - frantic arrangements were made to spirit him out of Los Angeles.
Since its first showing on BBCtv in 1985, Say Goodbye to the President has never been seriously challenged - factually or legally.

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.
