: Shirley Bassey: I Am What I Am

In a documentary that is almost as revealing as her dresses,
Shirley Bassey talks about her work and the cost to her family life.
"Success ruins your personal life and relationships, especially for a woman.... [it] broke up my marriage and it didn't help my children any," she says. She also talks about how, after the tragic death of her youngest daughter, she broke down on stage in front of an audience of 10,000 fans: "There was an anger there and a guilt and I didn't give myself time enough to grieve."
Filmed in London, Cardiff and Monte Carlo the documentary includes interviews with some of the star's friends and associates including her daughter Sharon, her musical director and costume designer. It also gives viewers the chance to peek into the wardrobe at some of her most glittering and glamorous gowns. A concert by Shirley Bassey follows.

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.

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.
